Updated 10 U.S.C. 2337 Product Support Statute

Updated 10 U.S.C. 2337 Product Support Statute

Bill Kobren
As a quick follow-up to two DAU LOG Blog posts earlier this year entitled Provisions for Improving Life Cycle Sustainment Activities and Key FY21 NDAA Product Support Provisions, wanted to let the community know that FY21 NDAA Section 802 provisions have been incorporated into 10 U.S.C. 2337 Life Cycle Management & Product Support statute. The primary updates include:
  • addition of a new requirement in paragraph (b) for a Life Cycle Sustainment Plan (LCSP)
  • changing the scope of 10 U.S.C. 2337 from “major weapon systems” to “covered weapon systems”
  • changing PSM responsibility to “develop and implement a comprehensive product support strategy for the weapon system” to read “develop, update, and implement a life cycle sustainment plan…”
  • concurrently adding a requirement that “…the life cycle sustainment plan shall include…a comprehensive product support strategy” clarifying that the product support strategy is part of, but not synonymous with the LCSP.
  • adds a statutory definition of covered systems which reads “…The term "covered system" means- (A) a major defense acquisition program as defined in section 2430 of this title; or (B) an acquisition program or project that is carried out using the rapid fielding or rapid prototyping acquisition pathway under section 804 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2016 (Public Law 114–92; 10 U.S.C. 2302 note) that is estimated by the Secretary of Defense to require an eventual total expenditure described in section 2430(a)(1)(B).”
