Abstract:

This document is an annotated briefing about the use of multi-year procurement MYP as a means of acquiring weapon systems. Historically, MYP has been an effective way to reduce cost growth in acquisition programs. We studied the results of recent cases of MYP, among them the CH-47 cargo helicopter, UH-60L utility helicopter, and the Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles FMTV. We concluded that although MYP has not been widely used, it is worthy of consideration for use with mature systems, rather than with major new systems.
