Core Business Mission (CBM)
Weapon Systems Lifecycle Management (WSLM)
The Weapon System Lifecycle Management (WSLM) Core Business Mission is responsible for the full lifecycle management – "cradle-to-grave" – of Defense acquisition of weapon systems and automated information systems to include requirements, technology, development, production, sustainment, and disposal. The Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition, Technology & Logistics) (USD (AT&L)) is responsible for the WSLM business area and is the Certification Authority, pursuant to Title 10 U.S. Code §2222, for all Defense business systems within this functional area.
Key Initiatives
Earned Value Data Enhancements improve access, accuracy and timeliness of Earned Value Management (EVM) information. The EVM Central Repository pilot program provides an automated central repository for key acquisition data and provides a test framework to evaluate and improve approaches for EVM, Cost and Software Data Reporting.
RMD 700/Selected Acquisition Report (SAR), President’s Budget and Future Year Defense Program (FYDP) Transparency. USD (AT&L) has established, in coordination with the USD(C)/CFO and Director of OSD Cost Assessment & Program Evaluation a process for ensuring current financial information is reported in the SARs, including, but not limited to, current life-cycle cost estimate, annual funding by appropriation, planned annual procurement quantities, Program Acquisition Unit Cost and Average Procurement Unit Cost, and actual realized funding and procurement. The information reported in this process will be consistent with cost estimate, funding, and procurement quantity information provided for the preparation of the President's Budget and the FYDP. The new processes and data procedures will be used to create financial information for SARs and MARs for all MDAPs and MAIS.
Pre-Milestone B Information Management establishes enterprise structure, data and information requirements for pre-Milestone B acquisition efforts to meet the Weapon Systems Acquisition Reform Act direction and Department efforts to improve acquisition performance.
