The Cost Analysis Improvement Group CAIG reviews and establishes criteria, standards, and procedures concerning the preparation and presentation of cost estimates for defense systems and quies them to the Defense Systems Acquisition Review Council DSARC. This example of a CAIG OS Cost Estimate Report covering a hypothetical case F-16X MSIP and F-16A developed. This will further assist the cost analyst in the preparation of cost-estimating reports submitted to the DSARC and CAIG during the acquisition process of a modification program and for general applications. This example is not intended to imply the existence of a specific modification program. Nor does it imply a preference for one analysis technique over another. The example illustrates how OS costs can be developed for CAIG review with available data bases, and displays and appropriate format for presentation of cost estimates. The existing F-16A data base was used only to illustrate the need to relate an estimate to an existing similar system and to ensure a consistent relationship between values and the cost element structure. Each case should address data which is the most complete and accurate for its purpose.
