2.3.1 Specifications and Drawings. The family of
specifications and drawings, resulting from the progressive steps of the
systems engineering process, provides the basis for the Program WBS, the
Contract WBS, and its extensions.
2.3.2 Contractor Management Control System. The
Contract WBS should serve as the framework for the contractor's management
control system. That system should provide auditable and traceable
summaries of internal data generated by its performance measurement
2.3.3 Acquisition Logistics. The acquisition logistics
elements should be accommodated in the upper levels of the WBS. Areas for
consideration include acquisition logistics management and reporting;
Contractor Logistics Support; peculiar support equipment; initial spares,
support data, and training; and transition to sustainment (Operations and
Maintenance (O&M) Phase).
2.3.4 Planning, Programming and Budgeting Execution
(PPBE). The Program WBS should be the basis for program element
data to support the PPBE submittals.
2.3.5 Life-Cycle Cost. Life-cycle cost (LCC) is the
total cost for the weapons or support system R&D, investment, Operating
and Support (O&S), and disposal. LCC commences at the program initiation
and ends with retirement or demilitarization and disposition of the system.
The established WBS requirements are associated solely with those elements
of R&D, investment, and O&S that are applicable to all contracted
2.3.6 Procurement. The following areas should relate
to elements of the Program WBS: specifications, structure of SOWs, Contract
WBS, CLIN structure, CPR, IMS, configuration items, technical and management
reports, and Government-furnished equipment.
2.3.7 Reporting. All program status reporting
requirements should be consistent with the Program
