Abstract:

There is currently a need for a standardized methodology for spreading SDIO cost estimates by fiscal year. This study was initiated in October 1992 as part of a group of studies to improve methods for time-phasing SDIO Global Protection Against Limited Strike GPALS System Element cost estimates. More specifically, this effort was ventured to capture the Military Construction MILCON process for incorporation into a fiscal year spreading methodology. This report documents the results of an analysis conducted to develop a standardized method for spreading MILCON cost estimates by fiscal year across the defense system acquisition cycle. The results of this analysis are intended to serve as a basis for spreading estimated MILCON costs by fiscal year for SDIO GPALS System Element cost estimates. The initial step in this analysis was to review regulations and directives associated with the MILCON process. U. S. Army and U.S. Air Force regulations, as well as SDIO directives were included as part of this review. Next, a review of U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force studies pertaining to the activities involved in the MILCON process was conducted. From this analysis, MILCON fiscal year spreading rules were developed. The results of the MILCON process analysis are documented in this report.
