prioritizing resources to support high impact government programs

Why:  In response to Congressional budget cuts, the Secretary of Defense’s Acquisition, Technology & Logistics Acquisition Resources & Analysis (AT&L ARA) sought a data-driven analysis would would help them equitably spread budget cuts across Major Defense Acquisition Programs.  Specifically, they needed to understand the operational impact on specific programs including foregone defense capabilities  and impacts to the defense industrial base.

What:  The Technical Assent team planned and performed an analysis of 100 Major Defense Acquisition Programs, including the Littoral Combat Ship,  for the Office of the Secretary of Defense that highlighted areas of risk in the budget projections based on Service, Joint Capability Area, and production location. We created a model that provided a unified view of procurement plans and well as budgeted and ordered quantities compared to production rates (demand vs supply) under several possible production scenarios.
