Many databases rely on documents (research) of the past to input
data to create a comprehensive database. The Selected Acquisition
Report (SAR) is one such document. The SARs are pervasive documents
that have undergone decades of scrutiny by Congress and watchdog
organizations such as the Government Accountability Office. Since
the SAR has undergone such massive evolutionary changes, creating
an accurate acquisition database presents a daunting task for the
analyst and researcher alike. This research concerns itself with
one such database. From this prior research database, we look to
fill in missing data. We first conduct a literature review to
determine why we have database discontinuity. Indeed, a large part
of our review entails SARs. We find there are no other complete
sources for acquisition reporting. Also, the reason for missing
data stems from 30 years of change within the Department of Defense
administration. In addition, we grow concerned about the number of
rebaselines a program undergoes in its lifecycle.
