This Acquisition Handbook is aimed towards all Government Program Managers and their support personnel, such as Contracting Officers and Administrators, procurement attorneys, and program control, involved in systems, subsystems, and component acquisition. The concepts discussed assume that the reader has at least three years experience in acquisition. This guidebook will assist them in incorporating software reuse into all phases of the acquisition life cycle, from concept exploration to Post Deployment Software Support (PDSS).
It is not a "cookbook" for every possible reuse issue or strategy, rather it is meant to help you develop and tailor reuse programs. The goal of the Acquisition Handbook is to encourage software reuse during the acquisition and maintenance portions of the life cycle process, ranging from planning the acquisition strategy through awarding the contract to managing the effort and follow-on support. Software reuse guidance will be presented by providing methods, examples, recommendations, and techniques to implement various reuse strategies throughout the acquisition life cycle. The implications and effects of software reuse on the technical, management, cost, schedule, and risk aspects of a program/system during the acquisition process will be the foundation of this document.
