Description / Abstract:

Purpose. This pamphlet:

Provides guidance to help establish a Life Cycle Risk Management framework for risk management planning, risk identification, risk analysis, risk handling/mitigation planning, risk mitigation implementation and tracking for all acquisition programs.

Serves as a source of general guidance which can be tailored to fit within the program and statutory requirements.

Includes discretionary acquisition guidance and information, expert wisdom, best practices and lessons learned.

Applies to all elements of a program (system, subsystem, hardware, software, and acquisition/sustainment supply chains).

Should be used in conjunction with related directives, instructions, policy memoranda, or regulations issued to implement the mandatory procedures contained in DoD and AF directives and instructions.

Can be tailored into a single management process to provide an efficient, integrated acquisition process supporting the orderly flow of program decisions, milestones, and other essential activities.

Discusses performance within the context of the following areas of technical risks: threat; requirements; technology; engineering; manufacturing; environmental, safety, and health; logistics and supportability; test and evaluation; operational support; demilitarization and disposal.

This pamphlet uses the term "acquisition‖" generically to apply to all programs, regardless of life-cycle phase—from laboratory research programs to major weapon or information system development programs—through sustainment and disposal.
