Agenda Introduction Acquisition Authorities MDA Organization Keystone Guidance/Direction MDA Director's Roles BMDS Oversight Acquisition Principles and Highlights Acquisition Processes - Capability Requirements Generation - Acquisition Phases - Managing BMDS Baselines Summary Approved for Public Release 15-MDA-8139 (26 February 15). 2. Introduction: Today's ballistic missile defense System Approved for Public Release 14-MDA-8078 (15 December 2014) 3. MDA Unique Acquisition Authorities Why do we need to manage the ballistic missile defense System (BMDS) under unique authorities?
2 - Dynamic threat requires flexibility and rapid response - Presidential commitments: deploy missile defense in shortest possible time (2001), EPAA (2009). - BMDS requires the agility of a JUON managed more flexibly than most DoD programs How does MDA get this unique authority? - SecDef memo (Jan 02). Created MDA and authorized non-standard Acquisition and requirements generation - DoD Directive , missile defense Agency (Sep 09). Delegated many Acquisition responsibilities to MDA Director - SecDef Ballistic missile Review Report (Feb 10). no benefit in bringing MDA into the JCIDS or the full DoD Acquisition processes at this time.. What did we do to implement this authority? - Created robust yet flexible Acquisition oversight process (2010 to present).
3 - Developed Acquisition Policy and Processes Consistent with DoD policies, tailored from DoD Instruction Defined Acquisition phases and phase transition approval process (TBR and DBR). Defined unique BMDS management by 6 baselines Created rigorous process to review baseline execution status BMDS Baselines - Established and report baselines (BAR) (10 USC 225) 1. Resource (cost). Where are the challenges to this unique process? 2. Schedule - Pressure to bring BMDS into mainstream DoD processes 3. Technical - Frequent audits by external stakeholders 4. Test 5. Contracts Path Forward 6. Operational Capacity - Continue to improve and streamline process - Coordinate/collaborate with all stakeholders - Director-level engagements - Continuous workforce training BAR: BMDS Accountability Report DBR: Developmental Baseline Review JUON: Joint Urgent Operational Need TBR: Technology Baseline Review Approved for Public Release EPAA: European Phased Adaptive Approach 15-MDA-8139 (26 February 15) 4.
