The objective of this project was to identify options to streamline acquisition processes, enhance predictive power, and better and more efficiently inform senior decision-makers about trends and possible acquisition outcomes. As part of our analysis, we engaged with acquisition staff who assess programs, identified artificial intelligence (AI) activities in industry where unstructured data has been used to measure performance, and analyzed options to use AI to help assess acquisition programs. We identified several options to apply text analytics to unstructured data on major defense acquisition programs.
