The Baseline Acquisition Program (APB) is developed by the Manager Program (PM) prior to the launch of a program for all Acquisition Category (ACAT) programs and represents the current state of a program. The plan sets out the threshold and objective values for a program`s cost, schedule and performance requirements. Performance requirements are listed as key performance attributes (KPP) and key system attributes (KSA) and are linked to program objectives. These KPp and KSAs are developed by program sponsors (users) and are listed in the Capabilities Design Document (CDD) or Capabilities Production Document (CPD) and are also documented in the basic technical framework. The Milestone Decision Authority (MDA) is the responsible authority for receiving the BPA. Pub. L. 103-337, div. A, Title VIII, No.
815, October 5, 1994, 108 Stat. 2819, instructed the Minister of Defence to provide, before April 1, 1995, guidance on how to achieve the objectives and intentions of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.C 4321.C.C 4321 involved) by ensuring timely compliance with important defence procurement programmes and analysing the process as soon as possible. , how, the environmental lifecycle cost of these major defence acquisition programs, instructed the Secretary to analyze, by March 31, 1995, the environmental costs of a major defence procurement process as an integral part of the program`s lifecycle cost analysis, and instructed the Secretary to establish a database of documents prepared by the Department of Defence in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act. 1969 on major defence programmes.

803, December 2, 2002, 116 Stat. 2603, which authorized the Minister of Defence to implement major defence programs as spiral development programs and to define restrictions and requirements for these programs, was appointed by Pub. L. 114-92, div. A, title VIII, 821 (b) (2), 25.11.2015, 129 Stat. 900. Milestone B is another opportunity to strengthen key principles with MDA and stakeholder organizations in adapting the structure of programs and procurement processes to enable agile practices as outlined in the acquisition strategy. These include the structure, supervision and approval of publications with lower-level officials who are empowered to make timely decisions, while providing management with a regular overview of the program`s progress and problems. Given Agile`s dynamics, a level high enough must be structured not to limit scope changes and support iterative design and version development. Risks should be reduced to an acceptable level to act within MDAs using development versions to reduce risk, ideally with several potential suppliers.
The TMRR phase should have allowed the government to engage in agile practices by understanding the unique environments for managing requirements, changes, metrics, roles and responsibilities of governments and contractors, tailored processes, implementation of the version and competing priorities and incentives. If Point B is a formal commitment, the commitment is limited to any or group of releases when the contractor or program office cannot make or demonstrate reasonable progress. One of the main advantages of agile development is to regularly demonstrate the ability to work to users and other stakeholders. This provides the best overview of the intermediate stage and shifts the centre of gravity from a document-based review to a focus on maturity and skills availability. The Milestone-B decision authorizes the entry of the program into the EMD phase and the awarding of contracts for EMD activities. Based on precedents for an agile approach to streamlining documentation, as defined in previous milestone decisions, there should be few additional requirements for this review of the decision. Agile program managers should be in constant contact with key stakeholders with respect to changes to the
