readings this week Introduction to Defense Acquisition Management
Joint Program Management Handbook Third Edition
Chapter also goes on to discuss the capabilities-based
assessment (CBA) process, which is the “backbone” of JCIDS Defense
Acquisition University, 2010, p. 35). There is an excellent chart on
page 28 of your textbook that details the CBA process. The CBA is an
analytical approach utilized by the DoD to identify the needs of the
warfighter. The purpose of the process is to find out what requirements
the warfighter has. “Requirement” is just the acquisition way of
saying needs, supplies, or equipment. In a DoD contracting activity,
the “requirement” is the item or service that is being acquired.
ground work discussed in the lesson for this week is imperative to set
the stage for the acquisition process. Without solid research and
analysis early on, the acquisition process will go down the wrong path
and result in lost money and time.
your question for this week, and some of what we discussed last week,
is “What is wrong with the requirements” analysis that goes into our
federal or defense contracts today? Bring in examples of any problems
you have experienced to help round out the discussion this week.
Your initial post should be at least 300 words.
