DoDI 5000.02, January 7,

DoDI 5000.02, January 7, 2015 consistent with DCAPE study guidance and the DCAPE-approved study plan. In the memorandum, the DCAPE assesses: (1) The extent to which the AoA: (a) Examines sufficient feasible alternatives. (b) Considers tradeoffs among cost, schedule, sustainment, and required capabilities for each alternative considered. (c) Achieves the affordability goals established at the MDD and with what risks. (d) Uses sound methodology. (e) Discusses key assumptions and variables and sensitivity to changes in these. (f) Bases conclusions or recommendations, if any, on the results of the analysis. (g) Considers the fully burdened cost of energy (FBCE), in cases where FBCE is a significant discriminator among alternatives. (2) Whether additional analysis is required. (3) How the AoA results will be used to influence the direction of the program. d. The final AoA will also be provided to and reviewed by the requirements validation authority prior to the Milestone A decision or the release of the request for proposals RFP for the Technology Maturation and Risk Reduction Phase activities. The requirements validation authority will, at a minimum: (1) Assess how well the recommended alternative satisfies validated requirements in the most cost effective manner for the warfighter. (2) Identify any opportunities to adjust or align capability requirements for better synergy across the joint force capabilities. (3) In accordance with the responsibilities identified in title 10 of U.S. Code Title 10, U.S.C. (Reference (g) (h)), offer alternative recommendations to best meet the validated capability requirements. Change 2, 02/02/2017 140 ENCLOSURE 9
