For any rapidly fielded capability solution delivered to operational users in response to a Joint Urgent Operational Need (JUON) or Joint Emergent Operational Need (JEON), the original requirement Sponsor will generate an assessment of the capability solution no later than six months after delivery to facilitate transition to a program of record, sustainment, or other alternate approaches. To facilitate follow-on development efforts, the assessment also may document applicable shortcomings in the fielded capability solution and what might be improved in a follow-on effort.
