1.1 PURPOSE AND SCOPE
This Risk Management Guide is designed to provide acquisition professionals and program management offices (PMOs) with a reference book for dealing with system acquisition risks. It is intended to be useful as an aid in classroom instruction and as a reference book for practical applications. Most of the material in this Guide is derived from the Defense Acquisition Deskbook. Readers should refer to Paragraph 2.5.2 of the Deskbook for any new risk management information that is disseminated between publishing of updated Guide editions.
