DoDI 5000.02, January 7,

DoDI 5000.02, January 7, 2015 ENCLOSURE 1 ACQUISITION PROGRAM CATEGORIES AND COMPLIANCE REQUIREMENTS 1. PURPOSE. This enclosure: a. Provides the definitions and dollar thresholds of acquisition categories (ACATs) and prescribes the policy for assignment of the cognizant Milestone Decision Authority (MDA). b. Lists the information requirements associated with the ACATs in tabular format. c. Provides the policy and procedure applicable to acquisition program baselines and acquisition program reporting. 2. ACATs a. Categories. An acquisition program will be categorized based on the criteria in Table 1 of this enclosure. Table 1 contains the description and decision authority for ACAT I through ACAT III programs. The Defense Acquisition Executive (DAE) or designee will review potential ACAT I and IA materiel solutions; the Component Acquisition Executive (CAE) or the individual designated by the CAE will review potential ACAT II and ACAT III materiel solutions. b. Designation of Programs That Qualify as Both a Major Automated Information System (MAIS) Program and a Major Defense Acquisition Program (MDAP). At the DAE’s discretion, a program that meets the definitions of both a MAIS program and an MDAP may be treated as an MDAP. Programs will comply with the statutory and regulatory requirements associated with the chosen designation. The DAE’s determination will be documented in an Acquisition Decision Memorandum (ADM) for the program. c. Program Reclassification (1) The CAE will notify the DAE when an increase or estimated increase in program cost or a change in acquisition strategy will result in a possible reclassification of a formerly lower ACAT program as an ACAT I or IA program. ACAT changes will be reported as soon as the DoD Component anticipates that the program’s cost is within 10 percent of the minimum cost threshold of the next ACAT level. ACAT reclassification will occur upon designation by the DAE. (2) The CAE may request reclassification of an ACAT I or IA program to a lower category. The request will identify the reasons for the reduction in category level. The category reduction will become effective upon approval of the request by the DAE. Change 2, 02/02/2017 48 ENCLOSURE 1

DoDI 5000.02, January 7, 2015 Table 1. Description and Decision Authority for ACAT I – III Programs ACAT Reason for ACAT Designation Decision Authority ACAT I ACAT IA 2, 3 ACAT II ACAT III • MDAP (10 U.S.C. 2430 (Reference (g)(h))) o Dollar value for all increments of the program: estimated by the DAE to require an eventual total expenditure for research, development, and test and evaluation (RDT&E) of more than $480 million in Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 constant dollars or, for procurement, of more than $2.79 billion in FY 2014 constant dollars o MDA designation • MDA designation as special interest 1 • MAIS (10 U.S.C. 2445a (Reference (g)(h))): A DoD acquisition program for an Automated Information System 4 (AIS) (either as a product or a service 5 ) that is either: o Designated by the MDA as a MAIS program; or o Estimated to exceed: • $40 million in FY 2014 constant dollars for all expenditures, for all increments, regardless of the appropriation or fund source, directly related to the AIS definition, design, development, deployment, and sustainment, and incurred in any single fiscal year; or • $165 million in FY 2014 constant dollars for all expenditures, for all increments, regardless of the appropriation or fund source, directly related to the AIS definition, design, development, and deployment, and incurred from the beginning of the Materiel Solution Analysis Phase through deployment at all sites; or • $520 million in FY 2014 constant dollars for all expenditures, for all increments, regardless of the appropriation or fund source, directly related to the AIS definition, design, development, deployment, operations and maintenance, and incurred from the beginning of the Materiel Solution Analysis Phase through sustainment for the estimated useful life of the system. • MDA designation as special interest 1 • Does not meet criteria for ACAT I or IA • Major system (10 U.S.C. 2302d (Reference (g)(h))) o Dollar value: estimated by the DoD Component head to require an eventual total expenditure for RDT&E of more than $185 million in FY 2014 constant dollars, or for procurement of more than $835 million in FY 2014 constant dollars o MDA designation 5 (10 U.S.C. 2302 (Reference (g)(h))) • Does not meet criteria for ACAT II or above • An AIS program that is not a MAIS program ACAT ID: DAE or as delegated ACAT IC: Head of the DoD Component or, if delegated, the CAE (not further delegable) ACAT IAM: DAE or as delegated ACAT IAC: Head of the DoD Component or, if delegated, the CAE (not further delegable) CAE or the individual designated by the CAE 6 Designated by the CAE 6 1. The Special Interest designation is typically based on one or more of the following factors: technological complexity; congressional interest; a large commitment of resources; or the program is critical to the achievement of a capability or set of capabilities, part of a system of systems, or a joint program. Programs that already meet the MDAP and MAIS thresholds cannot be designated as Special Interest. 2. When a MAIS program also meets the definition of an MDAP, the DAE will be the MDA unless delegated to a DoD Component or other official. The DAE will designate the program as either a MAIS or an MDAP, and the Program Manager will manage the program consistent with the designation. 3. The MDA (either the DAE or, if delegated, the DoD Chief Information Officer (CIO) or another designee) The DAE will designate MAIS programs as ACAT IAM or ACAT IAC. MAIS programs will not be designated as ACAT II. 4. AIS: A system of computer hardware, computer software, data or telecommunications that performs functions such as collecting, processing, storing, transmitting, and displaying information. Excluded are computer resources, both hardware and software, that are an integral part of a weapon or weapon system; used for highly sensitive classified programs (as determined by the Secretary of Defense); used for other highly sensitive information technology (IT) programs (as determined by the DoD CIO; or determined by the DAE or designee to be better overseen as a non-AIS program (e.g., a program with a low ratio of RDT&E funding to total program acquisition costs or that requires significant hardware development). 5. When determined by the USD (AT&L) (or designee), IT services programs that achieve the MAIS threshold will follow the procedures applicable to MAIS programs specified in this instruction. Additionally, regardless of MAIS status, software that is acquired as a service will be managed under this Instruction. IT services that are designated ACAT III or lower AIS programs will be managed under this Instruction. All other acquisitions of services will comply with Enclosure 9 of DoD Instruction 5000.02 (Reference (h)) until cancelled by issuance of the new acquisition of services instruction DoD Instruction 5000.74 (Reference (i)). 6. As delegated by the Secretary of Defense or Secretary of the Military Department. Change 2, 02/02/2017 49 ENCLOSURE 1
