Abstract:

The Cheyenne Mountain Operations Center houses numerous complex computer systems for tracking air, missile, and space events that could threaten homeland security or undermine military operations in theater. To ensure this mission can be met, the systems require ongoing upgrades. The most recent upgrade program - the Combatant Commanders Integrated Command and Control System CCIC2S - was initiated in 2000. Given the critical missions supported by Cheyenne Mountain systems, GAO initiated a review to 1 determine the status of the CCIC2S program in terms of meeting its cost, schedule, and performance goals 2 gauge the extent to which DOD has followed best practices in managing program requirements and 3 assess DODs control and oversight mechanisms for CCIC2S.
