New DoD Services Acquisition Policy
Among a range of key policy we should all be cognizant of, several life cycle logistics, product support, and sustainment-related considerations include:
- Para 4.1.a.(1) The requiring activity will determine the need for an FSM (Functional Services Manager) with relevant career field certification (e.g., Program Management, Life Cycle Logistics, or IT) based on risk or complexity of the acquisition.
- Para 4.1.b. The FSM and his or her project team should leverage the tools and checklists outlined in Step 4 of Figure 1 and tools found on the DAU Service Acquisition Mall website, which can be found at https://www.dau.edu/tools/Documents/SAM/home.html. These tools should be used to the maximum extent practicable for the development of performance-based requirements.
