DoDI 5000.74, Defense Acquisition of Services, replaced should cost with cost targets. The question I have is if that's a good, universal replacement term? I rather like cost targets, but I may be biased. I have replaced should cost with cost targets in services acquisition learning assets. Anyone know what became of will cost ? Thanks!

GUIDANCE: OMB has released a memo (M-20-18) on Managing Federal Contract Performance Issues Associated with the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). If Federal Government contractors or Government employees have any questions, please consult your local contracting office.Please disseminate to the widest audience possible.
The Honorable Alan R. Shaffer, Deputy USD (A&S) opened the 2019 DAU Symposium with a keynote address in which he stressed the need for acquisition professionals to become more knowledgeable and innovative in data management, artificial intelligence, intellectual property, and agile methods so as to counter the growing capabilities of our potential adversaries. He also steered the audience in the direction of becoming very familiar with the National Defense Strategy (NDS) and its chief tenets: Increase Lethality, Strengthen Alliances, and Reform the DoD. Overall, the goal is to "go faster" - with speed of relevance - on implementing the NDS and DoD System Acquisition.
