DAS Structure and Relation to JCIDS The DAS is structured with a series of major decisions/ milestones , phases, and key activities that provide a flexible approach for managing acquisition programs. DoDI 5000.02 interaction between JCIDs and the Acquisition Process provides six program models that can be tailored to the characteristics of the product being acquired. The model shown here applies to most weapon systems and programs such as tactical radios with significant hardware. The relationship of JCIDS documents to milestones, other decision points, and phases, is essentially the same for all models. Select each underlined decision point, milestone and phase for a description
DAS Governance: The Defense Acquisition System exists to manage the Nation's investments in technologies, programs, and product support necessary to achieve the National Security Strategy and support the United States Armed Forces. In that context, our objective is to acquire quality products that satisfy user needs with measurable improvements to mission capability at a fair and reasonable price. The fundamental principles and procedures that the Department follows in achieving those objectives are described in DoD Directive 5000.01 and DoD Instruction 5000.02. The Defense Acquisition Guidebook is designed to complement those policy documents by providing the acquisition workforce with discretionary best practice that should be tailored to the needs of each program. The Guidebook is not a rule book or a checklist and does not require specific compliance with the business practice it describes. It is intended to inform thoughtful program planning and facilitate effective program management. Key Players of the DAS: The goal of the DAS is to develop programs that meet DoD requirements that support the user community. The graphic shows the relationship between the end item user community and the work of the program executive and program manager. Quiz
Acquisition Categories (ACATs) The programs requiring the highest level of investment are known as Major Defense Acquisition Programs (MDAPs) MDAPs programs have the most extensive statutory and regulatory reporting requirements. Refer to DoDI 5000.02 for a description and categorization criteria for ACAT I through ACAT III. Acquisition programs are divided into categories to facilitate decentralized decision-making, execution, and compliance with statutorily imposed requirements. The categories determine the level of review, decision authority, and applicable procedures. The figure below provides an overview of the Acquisition Categories, Decision Authority, and Reviews Decision Review Process: All acquisition programs are required to go through a review process prior to each major decision point. Only ACAT ID and ACAT IAM programs go through reviews above the CAE level. They are reviewed by an Overarching Integrated Product Team (OIPT), then by the DAB.
