In 1962, the Technical Services and Service Test Boards were consolidated within the Army Materiel Command forming the Test and Evaluation Command (TECOM). TECOM performed this consolidated testing mission for many years, but in 1972, as a result of a Blue Ribbon Panel recommendation, the Operational Test and Evaluation Agency (OTEA) was created to establish an independent field agency for Operational Evaluation, separate and distinct from the developing, procuring, and using commands.
