Summary
The review of the Air Force's C-X airlift aircraft program shows that the Department of Defense may not solicit the maximum practicable competition if an airlifter other than the C-X is to be selected to meet U.S. airlift requirements. Failure to do so could result in sole-source awards for multibillion dollar systems without permitting industry the opportunity to make proposals for an aircraft with different size and capabilities than the C-X. Realizing there are trade-offs, every effort should be made to obtain the best mix of modern, capable, and economical systems possible since they will probably be in the Air Force inventory well into the next century
