Barbara Glotfelty



Ms. Glotfelty was a senior procurement analyst on the staff of the Director of Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy (DPAP) in the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics from August 2003 to May 2009.  She was the DPAP point of contact for international contracting matters.  She monitored proposed legislation, developed and implemented policy, served on the committees responsible for international contracting content in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and its DoD Supplement, and addressed a wide variety of contracting matters with counterparts in other countries, particularly those with which DoD has signed Reciprocal Defense Procurement Memoranda of Understanding or Declarations of Principles.  

Ms. Glotfelty’s federal service began as a Naval Material Command intern.  After working for the Navy, and for the Office of Federal Procurement Policy in the Office of Management and Budget, she focused on major systems acquisition in a variety of positions at Headquarters, Air Force Systems Command (AFSC), and then in the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD).  From 1987 to 1991, she was a member of the Headquarters AFSC Contract Review Committee, responsible for assessing the Command’s largest solicitations and contracts before they were issued.  From 1991 to 2002, she worked in OSD on the contracting and business aspects of numerous major weapons systems programs as part of the Defense Acquisition Board process, and was the procurement point of contact for policy areas such as acquisition strategy, source selection, multiyear procurement, and termination liability funding.  She was DPAP’s representative to the Defense Acquisition Policy Working Group, which is responsible for maintaining the 5000-series directives and associated guidance.
