Today’s constrained economic environment demands that taxpayer dollars be prioritized to meet the demands of the 21st century. On February 22, a week after the defense budget was submitted to Congress, Dr. Ashton B. Carter delivered a keynote address on the Pentagon’s Defense Efficiency Initiative, which was launched to reduce the Department of Defense's overhead expenditures and improve efficiency. Following Dr. Carter’s remarks was a question and answer period with the audience. CNAS also took questions from Twitter @CNASdc.
