ARRT Tool Suite

SAM is also home of the Acquisition Requirements Roadmap Tool (ARRT) Suite, a collection of tools that help you build strategic elements of your acquisition documents by walking you through structured processes to help you ask and answer the right questions related to your acquisition.

The ARRT Suite includes a Requirements Definition tool, an Evaluation Factors tool, a Performance Assessment tool, and a Cost Estimation tool. These can be used independently or together to produce your work products.
