ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Karen Lerohl Wilson, vice president of AlliedSignal, Inc. It states that Wilson is considered a leader for reforms in commercial contract work for the U.S. Department of Defense and for other government agencies. It mentions that Wilson was part of an expert panel in the late 1990s appointed by the General Accounting Office for the U.S. Congress to recommend changes for the Cost Accounting Standards Board. Wilson stated that the Department of Defense might be denying itself to accessing new technologies because its acquisition processes were not adjusted to use innovative commercial approaches, thus increasing expense and complexity of government contract work.
