Documents the cost analysis conducted by the Service Cost Agency (SCA) in cases where the SCA is not developing an ICE. This cost analysis may range from an SCA non-advocate estimate, independent SCA assessment of another government estimate, or other SCA cost analysis, as determined by the SCA and reflected in DoD Component policy before Milestones A, B, and C and the FRP decision. The CCP must be signed by the DoD Component Deputy Assistant Secretary for Cost and Economics (or Defense Agency equivalent) and include a date of record.
