Para 4.2 Analysis of Alternatives
Analyzing alternatives is part of the Cost as an
Independent Variable process. Alternatives analysis shall broadly examine
multiple elements of project or program alternatives including technical risk and maturity, price, and costs.
Para 4.5 Resource Estimates
The Component cost agency shall prepare an
independent LCCE and associated report for the decision authority for all ACAT
IC programs, except those reviewed by the CAIG, for all major decision points as
specified in DoDI 5000.2, Enclosure 3 (reference (b)), or as directed by the MDA. For programs with significant
visibility, the Component Acquisition Executive may request an additional
Component cost analysis estimate.
Para 4.5.1 Life-Cycle Cost Estimates
The estimating activity shall explicitly base the LCCE
(or EA for ACAT IA programs) on program objectives; operational requirements;
contract specifications; careful risk
assessments; and, for ACAT I programs, a DoD program work breakdown structure,
or, for ACAT IA programs, a life-cycle cost and benefit element structure agreed
upon by the IPT.
Para 188.8.131.52 Manpower
For all programs regardless of acquisition category,
DoD Components shall determine the source of support for all new, modified, and
replacement systems based on the procedures, manpower mix criteria, and risk assessment instructions in Deputy Under
Secretary of Defense (Program Integration) and Deputy Under Secretary of Defense
(Installations) memo, "2000 DoD Inventory of Commercial and Inherently
Governmental Activities Data Call," November 2000....
DoD Components shall determine manpower and contract
support based on both peacetime and wartime requirements, and establish manpower
authorizations at the minimum necessary to achieve specific vital objectives
(DoDD 1100.4). As part of this process, DoD
Components shall assess the risks (DoDI 3020.37) involved in contracting support for critical
functions in-theater, or in other areas expecting hostile fire. Risk mitigation shall take precedence over cost
savings in high-risk situations or when
there are highly sensitive intelligence or security concerns.
Para 184.108.40.206 Manpower
The manpower estimate shall address whether there
are any personnel issues that would adversely impact full operational deployment
of the system. It shall clearly state the risks associated with and the likelihood of
achieving manpower numbers reported in the estimate. It shall briefly assess the
validity of the manpower numbers, stating whether the Component used validated
manpower methodologies and manpower mix criteria, and assessed all risks.
