Services Acquisition-Seven Step Process

The Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition has issued a priority policy to all DoD agencies involved in services acquisition contracting, to substantially improve the efficacy of the acquisition and contracting process.  This involves the disciplined use of a formal “7-Step Process” for the planning and contracting for major services.

This site is a prototype web application designed to provide interactivity and guidance for services acquisition program offices, and to capture all team inputs into a structured database. Additionally it provides required reports and contracting documents as the team progresses through the planning and execution phases.  This site calls for extensive, customized data collection forms and database integration for all user inputs. It is built upon the WordPress CMS system to provide for training and instructional content, navigational menus, and UX design. On top of that is an extensive, tailored database of team interaction.

This tool is currently in development and is under evaluation by various DoD agencies.
