A Resource for Defense Program Technical Reviews and Audits

Bill Kobren

In case you were not already aware of it, the IEEE Standard for Technical Reviews and Audits on Defense Programs (IEEE Standard 15288.2™-2014, available through the ASSIST Quick Search website) “establishes the requirements for technical reviews and audits to be performed throughout the acquisition life cycle for the US Department of Defense (DoD) and other defense agencies. This standard provides the definition, description, and intent, as well as the entry/exit/success criteria, for each technical review and audit. It is to be used to establish agreement between acquirers and suppliers on the technical reviews and audits that are needed for the project, as well as the focus and expectations of each."  

 

An excellent resource for any acquisition professional involved with, supporting, or leading any of the key programmatic technical reviews and audits. These reviews and audits include:

 

·         Alternative systems review (ASR)

·         System requirements review (SRR)

·         System functional review (SFR)

·         Preliminary design review (PDR)

·         Critical design review (CDR)

·         Test readiness review (TRR)

·         Functional configuration audit (FCA)

·         System verification review (SVR)

·         Production readiness review (PRR)

·         Physical configuration audit (PCA)
