  1. Acquisition PrioritiesandGuiding Principles David G. Ahern Portfolio Systems AcquisitionOffice of the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Acquisition) May 5, 2010

  2. Agenda • Setting the Stage: SecDef and USD(AT&L) Priorities • Major Policy Changes— • DoD Instruction 5000.02 • Weapons Systems Reform Act of 2009 • Introducing New Capabilitiesfor the Warfighter

  3. Excerpts from Secretary Gates Congressional Testimony - February 3, 2010 Budget reflects major institutional priorities First, reaffirming and strengthening the nation’s commitment to care for the all-volunteer force, our greatest strategic asset Second, rebalancing America’s defense posture by emphasizing capabilities needed to prevail in current conflicts, while enhancing capabilities that may be needed in the future Third, continuing the department’s commitment to reform how DoD does business, especially in the area of acquisitions Today’s presentation focuses on our organization, policies, and procedures to address acquisition reform

  4. USD(AT&L) Dr. Ashton Carter Priorities Support for the War Effort Expedient logistical support for Afghanistan Anticipate and meet the system needs of today’s warfighter Agile and expert contingency contracting Execute the Secretary's program decisions Acquisition Reform Carry out the 2009 Weapon System Acquisition Reform Act, but don’t stop there! Start well and address risk early and often, focus on the back end as well Employ good sense, good discipline and above all good people Encourage realism, transparency and the willingness to seek help when needed More Emphasis on Science and Technology Insert AT&L expertise and perspective into Shaping Efforts Quadrennial Defense Review, Missile Defense Review, Space Posture Review, and the Nuclear Posture review all have acquisition impacts 4


  6. Previous Acquisition Process A C B • Process entry at Milestone A, B, or C • Entrance criteria met before entering phase • Evolutionary Acquisition or Single Step to Full Capability User Needs &Technology Opportunities (ProgramInitiation) FOC IOC Production & Deployment System Development & Demonstration Concept Refinement Technology Development Operations & Support Design Readiness Review FRP Decision Review ConceptDecision LRIP/IOT&E Pre-Systems Acquisition Systems Acquisition Sustainment • Problems Identified • Most potential programs proceed to Milestone B without a predecessor review to assess the capability need and direct analysis of alternatives • Technical maturity is not adequately demonstrated prior to program initiation • Program cost, schedule, and performance inadequately informed by design considerations • Requirements “creep” continues to de-stabilize programs • No formal and effective opportunity between Milestone B and Milestone C for MDA to assess progress, adjust / defer requirements, or, consistent with statute, re-structure the program

  7. 2003 - 2008 • Six years of appropriations and authorization acts • Studies and associated recommendations: • The Quadrennial Defense Review • Defense Acquisition Performance Assessment (DAPA) • The Defense Science Board (DSB) Summer Study on Transformation • The Beyond Goldwater-Nichols Study by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) • Assessments by the Government Accountability Office • Resulting pilot actions and experimentation • A series of functional policy memos Since the last DoDI 5000.02 was published we’ve had:

  9. DoD Instruction 5000.02 - Summary • While we have much to do, the Department has taken action to address many of the issues related to program execution • Ensuring a proper foundation before initiating programs • Limiting requirements changes • Requiring mature technologies and system engineering discipline • Competitive prototypes to reduce risk, improve competition, inform decisions • Better integration between development and operational test and evaluation • Improvements in how we incentivize contract performance • It will take time to realize the results of these changes …but we are already seeing improvements

  10. Weapon System Acquisition Reform Act(PL 111-23) Org Excerpts • Section 101 — Director of Cost Assessment and Program Evaluation • Senate confirmed official, takes on the cost estimation function outlined in both bills • Takes over the functions of the Director of Program Analysis and Evaluation (PA&E) • Assigns the Director two deputy directors, one for cost assessment (CAIG staff relocates here) and one for program evaluation (the remaining PA&E staff). • Section 102 — Directors of Developmental Test and Evaluation and Systems Engineering • Newly created roles reporting directly to USD AT&L • Responsible for issuing joint guidance relating to the integration of developmental test and systems engineering, and managing the associated workforces • Components required to develop and implement plans to ensure they have the appropriate resources for developmental testing and systems engineering, and the two Directors are required to assess these plans. • Section 103 — Performance Assessment and Root Cause Analysis • SD to designate a senior official as the principal official for conducting performance assessments and root cause analysis for major defense acquisition programs. • Responsible for issuing guidance related to performance assessment for acquisition programs and for analyzing the root causes of poor performance, including reviews post Nunn-McCurdy • Section 104 — Assessment of Technological Maturity of Critical Technologies of Major Defense Acquisition Programs by the Director, DDR&E • Section 105 — Role of the Commanders of the Combatant Commands in Identifying Joint Military Requirements

  11. Weapon System Acquisition Reform Act(PL 111-23) Policy Excerpts • Section 201 — Consideration of Trade-Offs Among Cost, Schedule, and Performance Objectives in Department of Defense Acquisition Programs • Officials outside the JROC given a chance to develop estimates of cost and schedule before the JROC approves a requirement, • Requirements are structured in a way that will allow for incremental, evolutionary, or spiral development • JROC, in consultation with these same officials, to set a schedule objective for each requirement • Director of Cost Assessment and Program Evaluation (the official formerly known as PA&E) to issue guidance in advance of all Analyses of Alternatives (AOA). Each alternative considered in the AOA must evaluate trade-offs among cost, schedule, and performance objectives; • MDA, prior to granting a Milestone B certification, to certify that appropriate trade-offs among cost, schedule, and performance • Section 202 — Acquisition Strategies to Ensure Competition Throughout the Lifecycle of Major Defense Acquisition Programs • To ensure that the acquisition strategy for each program includes measures to preserve the option of competition, at both the prime and subcontract levels, throughout the life of the program • Ensure that maintenance and sustainment contracts are awarded competitively and that public sector performance of maintenance and sustainment is fully considered. • Section 203 — Prototyping Requirements for Major Defense Acquisition Programs • Modify acquisition guidance to require competitive prototyping prior to a Milestone B decision

  12. Weapon System Acquisition Reform Act(PL 111-23) Policy Excerpts • Section 204 — Actions to Identify and Address Systemic Problems in Major Defense Acquisition Programs Prior to Milestone B Approval • Program manager to notify the Milestone Decision Authority, if at any time prior to a Milestone B decision, the estimate of the total program cost grows by more than 25% or the program schedule for initial operational capability grows by more than 25 • Section 205 — Additional Requirements for Certain Major Defense Acquisition Programs • Programs entering into system development (i.e., receiving Milestone B approval) on the basis of a waiver to any of the statutory criteria for Milestone B, must be reviewed by the milestone decision authority at least annually until they meet all of the criteria • Semi-annual review, by the official in charge of performance assessment, of programs that have not been terminated following a Nunn-McCurdy breach • Section 206 — Critical Cost Growth in Major Defense Acquisition Programs • Modifies the “Nunn-McCurdy” law, relating to significant and critical cost threshold breaches on major defense acquisition programs. It would require the official responsible for performance assessment to perform a root cause analysis following a critical Nunn-McCurdy breach. It would include a presumption of termination for such a program • Section 207 — Organizational Conflicts of Interest in Major Defense Acquisition Programs • Ensure that DOD gets systems engineering advice from sources independent of the prime contractor • Systems engineering and technical assistance functions contractor on a major weapon system cannot have a corporate affiliate who is a major contractor on the same weapon system
