What authority do I have to not pursue a KSA Objective due to a lack of funding? What references describe my tradeoff options in this scenario? Thanks!
The Program Manager has ultimate responsibility for the Cost, Schedule, and Technical performance of his/her program. All programs require tradeoffs and many/most programs have unfunded requirements. If there are one or more Key System Attributes listed in the Capability Development Document which are unaffordable under the current program budget, the Program Manager will generally prioritize all KSAs from most to least important and then obtain the concurrence of the Milestone Decision Authority, Resource Sponsor, User Community, and/or Oversight IPT to concur on the breakout for funded and unfunded requirements.
