Agile Acquisition Outcomes

Decrease Costs & Do More With What We Have

1. Eliminate duplication within program portfolios 2. Eliminate unnecessary administrative costs (proposal preparation) 3. Create contract provisions that empower program managers to efficiently increase quantities 4. Build enterprise solutions once and reuse them 5. Align IT acquisition strategies with IC IT efficiencies

Improve Communication & Increase Collaboration

6. Enable integrated teams to develop apps & services (industry, analysts, users & program office) 7. Provide developers a scalable, affordable, simple environment for creating, testing, and integrating their applications and services 8. Drive collaborative requirements development (SOO vs. SOW/alpha contracting) 9. Promote IC-wide Industry advisory groups 10.Create Tech fellow rotation program

Improve Performance

10.Host applications from multiple developers 11.Require unlimited data rights to maximize flexibility 12.Increase use of incentive fees to motivate cost savings, rapid delivery, and superior performance 13.Limit modifications to commercial products and easily incorporate latest commercial technology

Contracting Trends

• Increased focus on outcome-based requirements

– Desired capabilities versus level-of-effort FTEs – Use of Statement of Objectives (Government and industry collaborate on requirements) versus traditional Statement of Work • Less sole source contracts/more competitions • Continued use of Multiple Award IDIQ contracts – On-going best value competitions – Access to ‘best athletes” while minimizing subcontracting costs – Increased capacity to fill requirements • Contract provisions that provide for efficient quantity increases • Options for additional capacity to facilitate surge requirements • Increased opportunities for small businesses to be prime contractors through “Prime of Primes” teaming arrangements • Increased use of Firm-Fixed Price contracts • Decreased use of Award Fee contracts Version 2.0, updated 3/13/2012 10:40 AM 9

Budget Realities – Way Ahead

• Eliminate duplication within NSG program portfolios • Use of multiple prime contracts (

direct relationships

) to minimize overhead costs associated with subcontracting, while not impacting small business goals • Provide standard hardware and software as Government-Furnished Property (GFP) to developers and integrators for ease of adopting commercial products, processes and technologies • Adopt use of commercial software and applications to maximum extent possible • Provide contractors with a common development and operational environment (e.g., multiple software applications residing on a single operating environment) • Use of shorter-term contracts to drive competitive prices and latest technologies • Use of incentive fees to motivate superior performance and cost savings
