    How do I document this to the MDA? Is a modified ASP and ADM required? What documents need to be re-accomplished to reflect current buys? Can contracts continue to be awarded for modifications to current aircraft?


    Answer

    Assuming that your program has not fully transitioned to sustainment, there are two documents that always need to reflex your current status--the Acquisition Strategy (AS) and the Acquisition Decision Memorandum (ADM).  These two documents should always define the program.  The AS is an operational agreement between the MDA and the program manager  and should always be kept up to date.  The MDA uses the ADM to authorize activities within the AS such as entering a new Acquisition phase, entry and exit criteria, or to authorize new quantities and modifications.  In short, these two documents provide "permission to operate" for a program and the limits for these operations.
