Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment Ms. Ellen Lord established the Joint Acquisition Task Force (JATF) March 25, 2020, to coordinate Defense acquisition resources assisting Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in response to the COVID-19 public health emergency.
The JATF's efforts are captured in the new DAU Podcast series, Adaptive Acquisition. This series also highlights “Powerful Examples” -- an initiative to share innovative acquisition practices across the Defense Acquisition Workforce.
This seven-episode series offers podcast listeners a convenient way to hear about the mission, challenges and actions of the JATF. The podcast documents success stories of the JATF response including the missions invested in medical resources and demonstrates the use of Agile practices during crises. DAU released the first episode January 14 and will continue to release them each Thursday through February.
