DTE&A began 18 initiatives in fall 2020 to promote a new Test and Evaluation (T&E) paradigm in the three DTE&A Lines of Effort:

  • Enhance Program Execution

The initiatives are led by cross-functional teams within the DTE&A organization working collaboratively to solve the challenges and enhance success for defense acquisition programs.
