Army Futures Command’s role in the service’s modernization enterprise is being narrowed, according to a new directive obtained by Breaking Defense, as Army leadership aims to clarify AFC’s roles and responsibilities.
The May 3 directive, signed by Army Secretary Christine Wormuth, states the commanding general of Army Futures Command will now coordinate with the assistant secretary of the Army for acquisition, logistics and technology (ASA(ALT)) on research, development and acquisition efforts. ASA(ALT) will be responsible for the overall supervision of acquisition and oversight of the service’s research and development activities, including science and technology efforts. It will also be responsible for the direction and supervision of the Army’s acquisition workforce.
