•Automated Information SystemsAutomated Information SystemsA system of computer hardware, computer software, data or telecommunications that performs functions such as collecting, processing, storing, transmitting and displaying information. Includes Defense Business Systems (DBS). Excluded are computer resources, both hardware and software, that are physically part of and developed specifically for a particular weapons system; used for highly sensitive classified programs (as determined by the Secretary of Defense); or used for other highly sensitive information technology programs (as determined by the DOD CIO).•Defense Business SystemsDefense Business System (DBS)
A DBS is an information system, other than a National Security System, operated by, for, or on behalf of the DoD, including financial systems, management information systems, financial data feeder systems, and the information technology and cybersecurity infrastructure used to support business activities, such as contracting, pay and personnel management systems, some logistics systems, financial planning and budgeting, installations management, and human resource management. •Rapid Fielding of Urgent Needs Rapid Fielding of Urgent NeedsDoDI 5000.02 provides streamlined policy and procedures for acquisition programs that provide capabilities to fulfill urgent needs that can be fielded in less than 2 years and which are below the cost thresholds of Acquisition Category (ACAT) I and IA programs. Capability requirements for urgent operational needs and the rapid acquisition process is covered in a later lesson in this course.Development RFP Release Decision (DRFPRD)This decision point authorizes the release of RFP and source selection for the Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) contract and often for Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) options. Milestone A.Milestone A authorizes the release of the RFP and source selection for the Technology Maturation and Risk Reduction (TMRR) phase.Milestone B.Milestone B authorizes entry into the Engineering and Manufacturing Development phase. Milestone B is considered Program Initiation for most programs.Milestone C.Milestone C authorizes entry into the Production and Deployment (PD) phase or limited deployment for software systems. Milestone C also authorizes entry into Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) for those systems that have LRIP.The DAS is structured with a series of major decisions/milestonesMilestonesThe milestones serve as gates that must be passed through before the program can proceed to the next phase of the acquisition process. To pass a milestone, a program must meet specific statutory and regulatory requirements and be deemed ready to proceed to the next phase of the acquisition process., phases, and key activities that provide a flexible approach for managing acquisition programs.
