James Guerts, assistant secretary of the Navy for Research, Development & Acquisition, outlines the themes of the Navy’s new acquisition strategies, and how he plans to approach the reorganization.


The U.S. Navy’s new civilian leadership is overhauling the service’s acquisition strategy. As they build the framework, the Navy is keeping an eye towards delivering lethality, increasing agility, maintaining affordability and building a competitive workforce. James Guerts, assistant secretary of the Navy for Research, Development & Acquisition, outlined these themes during his keynote at the 2018 ACT-IAC Acquisition Excellence conference. “I think successful organizations are output-based. They use processes, talent and people, but ultimately it’s about output,” Guerts told Government Matters. “My main focus, based on my time at Special Operations Command, is delivering output with a sense of urgency. That’s what winning teams do.”
