Abstract:

In pursuing these issues, we found that the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, on May 12, 1992, approved the Navys October 1991 request that the FA-18EF development be designated as a major modification of its existing FA-18CD, instead of a new program. He decided that acquisition regulations did not require a Cost and Operational Effectiveness Analysis COEA for this modification, and be waived certain live fire testing requirements. The Under Secretary based his decision on 1 Navy analyses that indicated the EF development was a low to moderate risk and 2 recommendations made by the Conventional Systems Committee of the Defense Acquisition Board DAB.
