The CPC Policy (Appendix A) requires that the effects of
corrosion are objectively evaluated as part of program design and development
activities and the inevitable trade-offs made through an open and transparent
assessment of alternatives. This requirement is to be specifically addressed
during the earliest phases of the acquisition process and by decision
authorities at every level. It also establishes the need for Corrosion
Prevention and Control Planning for programs subject to Defense Acquisition
Board (DAB) Review.
