C7.15.3. DAES -- DD-AT and
C184.108.40.206. The DAES is a multi-part document, reporting
program information and assessments; PM, PEO, CAE comments; and cost and
funding data. The DAES shall be an early-warning report to USD(AT&L) and
ASD(C3I). The DAES describes actual program problems, warns of potential
program problems, and describes mitigating actions taken. The PM may obtain
permission from USD(AT&L) or ASD(C3I), as appropriate, to tailor DAES
content. At minimum, the DAES shall report program assessments (including
interoperability), unit costs (10 U.S.C. 2433 (reference (dk))), and current estimates. It
shall report the status of exit criteria and vulnerability assessments (31
U.S.C. 9106 (reference (dl) )).
C220.127.116.11. The DAES shall present total costs and quantities
for all years, as projected, through the end of the current acquisition
phase. In keeping with the concept of total program reporting, the DAES
shall present best estimates for costs beyond the FYDP, if the FYDP does not
otherwise identify those costs. The total program concept refers to system
acquisition activities from Concept and Technology Development through
Production and Deployment. The DAES shall report approved program funding
for programs that are subsystems to platforms and whose procurement is
reported in the platform budget line.
C18.104.22.168. The Office of USD(AT&L), the Office of
ASD(C3I), the Offices of DoD CAEs, CIOs, and PEOs, and the program office
shall each establish DAES focal points.
C22.214.171.124. DAES Reporting. USD(AT&L) shall designate ACAT
I programs subject to DAES reporting and assign each program to a quarterly
reporting group. ASD(C3I) shall designate ACAT IA programs subject to DAES
reporting and assign each program to a quarterly reporting group. The PM
shall use the CARS (see Appendix
1 ) to prepare the DAES, and submit both hard and electronic copies to
USD(AT and L) by the last working day of the program's designated quarterly
reporting month. ACAT IA programs shall submit an electronic copy of their
DAES report to ASD(C3I) 30 days after the end of the quarter. The PM shall
not delay the DAES for any reason.
C126.96.36.199. Out-of-Cycle DAES. There are two types of
C188.8.131.52.1. The PM shall submit a DAES when there is
reasonable cause to believe that a Nunn-McCurdy unit cost breach has
occurred or will occur (10 U.S.C. 2433(c) (reference (dk) )). (Submitting DAES
sections 5, 6.2, and 7, block #28, satisfies this requirement.)
C184.108.40.206.2. If submission of the DoD Component.s POM or BES
causes the program to deviate from the approved APB thresholds, the PM
shall submit DAES sections 5., 6.2, and 8.
C220.127.116.11. Consistency of DAES Information. DAES information
shall be consistent with that in the latest ADM, APB, and other mandatory or
approved program documentation.
