1. Tables 2-1,
and 5 show the
information requirements for all milestones and phases, both statutory and
regulatory. MDAs may tailor regulatory program information to fit the
particular conditions of an individual program. Decisions to tailor regulatory
information requirements shall be documented by the MDA. The non-mandatory
Defense Acquisition Guidebook (Reference
(f)) supports this Instruction to provide best practices, lessons learned,
and expectations for the information required by these tables. Issues
regarding the intent of the expectations described in the guidebook shall be
resolved by the MDA. The Acquisition Knowledge Sharing System (Reference (x)) contains a library of
mandatory policy and regulations and discretionary practices and advice.
2. The following tables and sections indicate applicability of requirements
by program type.
3. Table 5
contains Earned Value Management (EVM) implementation policy. Reference (f) and the DoD Earned Value
Management Implementation Guide (Reference
(au)) contain supporting information.
4. The APB is an important document for program management and shall
reflect the approved program being executed. It is the “Baseline Description”
of the program and shall include sufficient parameters to describe the cost
estimate (also referred to as the “Baseline Estimate” for MDAPs in section
2433 of Reference (k)), schedule,
performance, supportability, and other relevant factors. An APB is required
for all programs by paragraph 4.3.4 in Reference (b) and Table
2-1 of this Instruction. For MDAPs, sections 2433 and 2435 of Reference (k) provide specific requirements
for unit cost reports and baseline descriptions. Table 6 contains statutory and
regulatory APB policy.
