The Defense Business System Acquisition pathway was the first alternate pathway and precedes the Adaptive Acquisition Framework (AAF), however, the pathway is no less tailorable than the other pathways. This webinar will discuss DBS pathway tailoring specifically, what is required and what can be tailored to suit the needs of the programs. The discussion will describe approaches already used across DoD as possible tailoring examples then offer an opportunity for collaboration across the forum.
