2.1.1 Requesting Milestone Review Meetings
2.1.1 Requesting Milestone Review
Most likely, a PM will be designated during TD to guide that
development and to prepare for Milestone B. The PM is responsible for
requesting Milestone B and C review meetings. For ACAT ID programs, the
Defense Acquisition Board (DAB)21 conducts the
review. For ACAT IAM programs, the Information Technology Acquisition Board
(ITAB)22 conducts the review.
Concurrently with scheduling a milestone review meeting, the PM
establishes a schedule for the submission of critical technologies. When
establishing the schedule for submitting critical technologies, coordination
with the Component S&T Executive [and with the DUSD(S&T) for ACAT ID
and ACAT IAM programs] is important so that each organization has ample time
to complete its respective TRA activities.
21 The DAB is chaired by the
USD(AT&L), who is the MDA for ACAT ID programs. The Vice Chairman of the
Joint Chiefs of Staff (VCJCS) serves as the vice chairman.
22 The ITAB is
chaired by the ASD(NII) (formerly ASD(C3I), who is the DoD CIO and MDA for
ACAT IAM programs.
