Contractors for major weapon systems. Congress has persistently ex-pressed a conviction that competition is somehow beneficial to the systems acquisition process. It is important to understand how compel i-tion is defined in congressional usage, and the qualifi,ations that may be attached to it.
Contracting strategy formulation for production competition in major weapon systems acquisition. By Richard D. Hayes. and the expense involved in major weapon systems requires that early and careful planning be conducted in order to achieve production competition.
In this study, the researcher defines and identifies the characteristics and Author: Richard D. Hayes. This book shows the major weapon systems funded in the FY President’s Budget, organized by the Mission Support Activities.
Each Mission Area Category chapter heading further breaks out the funding allocation in FY by subgroups, and provides a summary programmatic and financial description of the major weapon systems within each portfolio.

To simplify the display of the various weapon systems, this book is organized by the following mission area categories: *Acquisition total includes National Defense Sealift Fund.

Our work has shown that four interrelated elements promote an efficient and accountable acquisition environment and process: 1) Organizational Alignment and Leadership, 2) Policies and Processes, 3) Human Capital's Acquisition Workforce and 4).
The Army’s R&D contracting portfolio has shown some signs of recovery, but the Army’s paradigm for its development pipeline for major weapon systems might be undergoing an evolution given that “the Army has been at the forefront of DoD’s Other Transaction Authority (OTA) resurgence.” 9,10 The Army was already using OTAs before the recent legislation encouraging.
While weapon system sustainment does not actually begin until the first production units are fielded, sustainment planning begins at the earliest stages of the defense acquisition system.
Successful post- fielding sustainment performance depends on critical thinking during requirements development and solution analysis. To select a procurement strategy, the procurement officer will have to consider factors such as the FRR, procurement procedures of the organization, delegation of authority, financial thresholds, internal clearance/approval procedures and corresponding administrative time frames, the type of procurement (goods, services or works), the complexity or the specificity of a requirement, the market.

(b) Requires a determination by the Secretary of Defense and a notification to Congress before acquiring a major weapon system as a commercial item. Definition.
As used in this subpart— “Major weapon system,” means a weapon system acquired pursuant to a major defense acquisition program. Policy. The Acquisition Strategy is a comprehensive plan that identifies and describes the acquisition approach that Program Management will follow to manage program risks and meet program objectives.
The Acquisition Strategy guides program execution across the entire program life cycle and is updated at every major milestone and review. The Acquisition Strategy documents the approach to be taken for items such as the actual acquisition, contracting, and fiscal, legal, personnel, considerations, etc.
The Acquisition Strategy should also address any policy, process, regulatory, etc. necessary to comply with FAR, and any other requirements related to the specific acquisition. The CIPS Contract Management guide is intended to cover all those activities associated with contract management.
The activities themselves are divided into two distinct but interdependent phases, upstream and downstream of the award of the contract. The principles in this guide could be applied to. For example, the National Defense’s Strategy heavy emphasis on great power competition will influence the types of weapon systems and capabilities DoD develops and purchases going forward.
Shifts in the defense acquisition system have incentivized a variety of changes in the industry that supports it. The following major studies on acquisition reform were conducted from to – The Weapons Acquisition Process—Harvard Business School, Merton J.

Examines methods for improving the effectiveness of competition in the acquisition of major weapon systems. Use of competition at the concept design stage is known to be inexpensive relative to benefits. However, competition is rare during procurement when the expense is immediate and any savings are delayed.
The Planning, Programing, Budget and Execution (PPBE) process (see PPBE Map) is one of three (3) processes (Acquisition, Requirements and Funding) that support the Defense Acquisition System. The PPBE process is focused on the Financial Management and resource allocation for current and future DoD acquisition programs.
The process is established by the Secretary of Defense (SecDef) who. maintain weapon systems; –Lack of access to IP data with appropriate rights; no competitive contracting for repair parts, maintenance, follow-on production = Higher long-term sustainment costs –Ambiguous and poorly defined contract terms Source: IDA, “Department of Defense Access to Intellectual Property for Weapon Systems.
