The Defense Health Agency (DHA) supports the delivery of integrated, affordable, high-quality healthcare services to the military health system (MHS).

To meet its mission—to provide a medically ready force and a ready medical force—the agency must acquire critical products and services. The DHA embraces and applies the full range of acquisition disciplines to ensure the efficient delivery of effective medical products and services. Its Component Acquisition Executive, J-4, oversees these functions as they are applied to the acquisition of supplies, equipment, services, information technology systems, and infrastructure.

What is the mission of the DHA’s Component Acquisition Executive? How is the DHA working with industry? How is the DHA applying agile principles to its acquisition functions? Dr. Barclay Butler, Component Acquisition Executive for the Defense Health Agency, joined me on The Business of Government Hour to share his insights on these topics and more. The following is an edited excerpt of our discussion complemented with additional research.
