FBCF Gets a Boost from Above

At last month's CNA report release event, new DOD Acquisition, Technology and Logistics Deputy Director Ashton Carter said a lot of good things, including:
We must measure the fully burdened cost of energy.
Amen. He also said that even if he weren't naturally inclined to be working on energy issues for DOD right now, the intense level of focus on energy coming out of the White House and the National Security Council is so high that it would behoove him to work energy issues from a career standpoint alone. That may be true for an increasing number in DOD (and elsewhere in Fed gov) who never previously considered energy as part of their day job.

This short memo from Sandra Irwin sets the stage.
