Department of Defense news release (Nov. 18, 2003): DoD releases Selected Acquisition Reports.
The Department of Defense has released details on major defense acquisition program cost and schedule changes since the June 2003 reporting period. This information is based on the Selected Acquisition Reports (SARs) submitted to the Congress for the Sept. 30, 2003, reporting period. This report can be viewed at: http://www.defenselink.mil/News/Nov2003/d20031118sar.pdf.
SARs summarize the latest estimates of cost, schedule, and technical status. These reports are prepared annually in conjunction with the President's budget. Subsequent quarterly exception reports are required only for those programs experiencing unit cost increases of at least 15 percent or schedule delays of at least six months. Quarterly SARs are also submitted for initial reports, final reports, and for programs that are rebaselined at major milestone decisions.
The total program cost estimates provided in the SARs include research and development, procurement, military construction, and acquisition-related operation and maintenance (except for pre-Milestone B programs, which are limited to development costs pursuant to 10 USC An abbreviation for U.S. Code. [section]2432). Total program costs reflect actual costs to date as well as future anticipated costs. All estimates include anticipated inflation allowances.
The current estimate of program acquisition costs for programs covered by SARs for the prior reporting period (June 2003) was $1,135,706.5 million.
