C2.4. ACQUISITION APPROACH
C2.4.1. The acquisition strategy shall
identify the approach the program will use to achieve full capability: an
evolutionary approach or a single step approach. Consistent with DoD
Instruction 5000.2, subparagraph 220.127.116.11.3.3. (reference (a)
acquisition strategy shall provide the rationale for choosing the approach.
If an evolutionary approach is being used, the acquisition strategy program
structure shall describe Block 1 (the initial deployment capability), and
how it will be funded, developed, tested, produced, and supported, and the
approach to treatment of subsequent blocks.
C2.4.2. If the ORD includes a firm
definition of requirements to be satisfied by each block, the acquisition
strategy shall define each block of capability and how it will be funded,
developed, tested, produced, and operationally supported.
C2.4.3. If the ORD does not allocate to
specific subsequent blocks the remaining requirements that must be met to
achieve full capability, the acquisition strategy shall define the full
capability the acquisition is intended to satisfy; the funding and schedule
planned to achieve the full capability to the extent it can be described;
and the management approach to be used to define the requirements for each
subsequent block and the acquisition strategy applicable to each block,
including whether end items delivered under earlier blocks will be
retrofitted with later block improvements.
