Key DoD Product Support & Sustainment Statutes

Bill Kobren
Back in 2019, I shared a few insights into “Key Defense Acquisition Workforce Statutes”. Today I’d like to take a moment to also highlight a number of product support and sustainment statutes that defense acquisition workforce members should be aware of – statutes that as you would expect undergird the new DoD Instruction 5000.91, “Product Support Management for the Adaptive Acquisition Framework” as well as a range of other policies such as the DoDI 4151.20 Depot Maintenance Core Capabilities Determination Process, DoDI 4151.21 Public-Private Partnerships for Product Support, and the DoDI 4151.24 Depot Source of Repair (DSOR) Determination Process, among others

Rather than recount all of these many statutory requirements here, instead allow me to point you to a single comprehensive DAU ACQuipedia article that not surprisingly is entitled “Product Support Statutes”. In this article you can view a summary of each requirement along with a link to the full statutory provision. Also not surprisingly, these statutes are interdisciplinary, directly affecting a range of defense acquisition workforce functional areas, not to mention the fact these product support requirements span the entire system lifecycle from the earliest stages of system development and acquisition through sustainment. A handy reference indeed!
