Defense polishes up its online acquisition face

The revamped Web site, at, is easier to navigate and is compliant with Section 508 requirements for making information available to disabled users, procurement officials said.

The site's features range from information about work force training and career development to the latest news about Defense acquisition reforms and policies.

'We have redesigned our Web page to meet the needs of the Defense acquisition community by providing timely information in a user-friendly way,' said Col. Lyndi Balven of the office's operations team.

The redesign is one of the initial projects of a slate of initiatives for the new Procurement and Acquisition Policy Office. DOD in October merged its procurement and acquisition divisions into one organization. Deidre Lee, Defense procurement director, heads the office.
