Abstract:

This report is the second of two reports on the overall management of the Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles FMTV. This report addresses the Armys planning to fulfill armor kit requirements for the FMTV and other medium tactical vehicle models being used to support the Global War on Terror. The first report addressed the Armys conditional acceptance and first inspection acceptance of FMTVs. The FMTV program is a major Defense acquisition program that comes under the management oversight of the Program Executive Officer for Combat Support and Combat Service Support at the TACOM Life Cycle Management Command. The program executive officers mission is to develop, acquire, field, and sustain the soldier and ground systems for the warfighters by integrating effective and timely acquisition, logistics, and cutting-edge technology. The Project Manager Tactical Vehicles is responsible for managing the FMTV program and reports to the program executive officer. The Army Acquisition Executive is the milestone decision authority for the program. Research, development, test, and evaluation, and procurement funds for the FMTV program total approximately 21 billion to acquire 83,185 vehicles by FY 2022. The program entered the production phase of the acquisition process in August 1995.
