Organization and History[edit]


United States Marine Corps Systems Command traces its beginning to the Marine Corps Research, Development and Acquisition Command (MCRDAC), which was established Nov. 18, 1987, as required by the Goldwater Nichols Act. General Alfred Gray, then Commandant of the Marine Corps, established the MCRDAC to streamline the acquisition process, incorporate the operating forces to identify deficiencies and to establish clear lines of authority, responsibility and accountability with respect to acquisitions.
