Configuration Steering Board
Established by component acquisition executives (CAE) to review at least annually all requirements changes, critical intelligence parameter changes, and any significant technical configuration changes for ACAT I programs in development, production, and sustainment that have the potential to result in cost and schedule impacts to the program. De-scoping options will also be considered. CSBs will review potential requirements changes and propose to the requirements authority for validation those changes that may be necessary to achieve affordability or program goal constraints or that will result in a more cost effective product. Changes that increase cost will not normally be approved unless funds are identified and schedule impacts are addressed.
