Project Announcement: Evaluation of DoD Lifetime Buys of Parts Used in Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance Systems (Project No. D2020-DEV0SI-0131.000)


We plan to begin the subject evaluation in May 2020. The objective of this evaluation is to determine whether DoD Components are complying with DoD policy and guidance when conducting lifetime buys of parts used in Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) systems and whether the use of lifetime buys reduces DoD supply chain risks. We may revise the objective as the evaluation proceeds, and we will also consider suggestions from management for additional or revised objectives.
