Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle: Introducing Competition into National Security Space Launch Acquisitions
DOD's Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle (EELV) program is the primary provider of launch vehicles for U.S. military and intelligence satellites. DOD expects to spend about $9.5 billion over the next 5 years acquiring launch hardware and services through the program, during which time it will also be working to certify new launch providers. Certified launch providers may compete for up to 14 launches, likely beginning in fiscal year 2015. Until now, the United Launch Alliance (ULA) has been the sole provider of launch services through the EELV program. Because of the importance of the national security space launch enterprise, GAO has been asked to look at many aspects of the EELV program over the past 10 years
