The program research and development announcement PRDA is a relatively new contracting method. Information on the PRDA for program managers is limited. This paper examines the PRDA in light of policy and experience. Based on the results of that examination, the paper develops guidelines for program managers to apply when deciding to use the PRDA in command, control, communications, and intelligence laboratory programs. A definition and a model of the PRDA ae developed from policty and the authors experience. The study concludes that published guidance contains adequate guidelines to define and execute the PRDA. The policy includes the essential information, that a program manager needs, to consider and decide on using the PRDA.
