5.6.3 Audits - CSCI
Testing. The contractor shall present the STR(S) for each CSCI and the
CSOM , SUM(S), and CSDM at a Functional Configuration Audit (FCA). The
contractor shall present the SPS, VDD, and source and object code for each
CSCI at a Physical Configuration Audit (PCA). The contractor shall also
present the CSOM, SUM(s), CSDM , SPM, and FSM at the PCA. The purpose of the
FCA is to demonstrate to the contracting agency that the CSCI was successfully
tested and meets the requirements of the SRS and the IRS(s). The FCA also
demonstrates to the contracting agency that the CSOM, SUM(S), and CSDM
adequately address the operation and support of the computer system. The
purpose of the PCA is to demonstrate to the contracting agency that the SPS is
complete and reflects an up-to-date technical description of the CSCI.
FCA and PCA for the CSCI may be postponed until the system level, if formal
testing of the CSCI requires system level integration. Specific details
regarding the FCA and PCA processes are contained in MIL-STD-1521.
