Bill LaPlante

Federal Leadership

Bill LaPlante stepped into the role of undersecretary of defense for acquisition and sustainment at a time when the Department of Defense has taken major strides in a number of critical arenas. Not only has his office served an important role in support of Ukraine and working with the defense industrial base to provide aid to the nation in its defense against Russia, but LaPlante’s acquisition and sustainment component has also been the driver for the Pentagon’s development and procurement of many critical advanced technologies, like hypersonics, unmanned vehicles, the technologies behind Joint All-Domain Command and Control, and much more.
