    Where in the DoDI 5000.02 dated 2015 covers the topics of Acquisition of Services? Why is it not its own enclosure?


    Answer

    DoDI 5000.02, December 08, Enclosure 9, Acquisition of Services, remained in effect until new regulatory guidance could be issued in the services acquisition area.  The Interim DoDI 5000.02, 26 November 2013 stated this fact as noted above in its Reference section as follows: 
     “DoD Instruction 5000.02, Operation of the Defense Acquisition System, December 8, 2008 (hereby cancelled with the exception of Enclosure 9 that will be cancelled separately at a later date).”  There was no need to add an Enclosure for services acquisition to the Interim DoDI 5000.02 issued in November 2013 since Enclosure 9 from the December 2008 version of DoDI 5000.02 was still in effect while final services acquisition policy was being staffed and finalized.
     
    Because of the criticality and top management emphasis on improving services acquisition, the final regulatory direction regarding the acquisition of services was issued on 5 January 2016 in a separate DoD Instruction.  See DoDI 5000.74, Defense Acquisition of Services, 5 January 2016.
