Grundman cited in Defense News, “Pentagon Punts on Major Program Cuts”

30 January 2012 • 0 Comments

Analysts say the Pentagon’s decision to make deep cuts in personnel spared deeper cuts to procurement accounts. . . . Steve Grundman, an independent analyst and former DoD industrial policy chief, found the ability to make personnel cuts surprising. “They’re not the kinds of choices that I would have thought the Pentagon could so quickly come to grips with in this restructuring cycle,” he said. “That they have, and at the same time are willing to take on the ballooning costs of military compensation and benefits, is the primary reason yesterday’s announcement is not bloodbath for defense contractors.”
