Coast Guard: Deepwater Requirements, Quantities, and Cost Require Revalidation to Reflect Knowledge Gained
DIANE Publishing, 2010 - 43 pages
The Deepwater Program includes efforts to build or modernize ships and aircraft and to procure other capabilities. After a series of project failures, the Coast Guard announced in 2007 that it was taking over the systems integrator role from Integrated Coast Guard Systems (ICGS). At the same time, a $24.2 billion program baseline was established which included schedule and performance parameters at an overall system level. This report assessed: (1) DHS and Coast Guard acquisition policies and approach to managing the program; (2) whether the program is meeting the 2007 baseline; and (3) Coast Guard efforts to manage and build its acquisition workforce. Includes recommendations. Charts and tables.
