Process and Regulatory Framework

DODI 5000.02 Policies & Procedures

Department of Defense Instruction 5000.02 (DODI 5000.02) prescribes the underlying policies and procedures relating to the defense acquisition system subject to the guidelines of Office of Management and Budget. The Instruction identifies milestones and decisions required by the process that more efficiently achieve program objectives, consistent with statutory requirements.

The Instruction lays out the overall acquisition program as a procedural structure comprised of a sequence of these decision points. Multiple programs are covered by the Instruction (include weapon systems, a variety of services, and information systems) and IPKeys primarily focuses on the Instruction’s software-intensive and software-dominant defense acquisition program models. Our detailed knowledge and experience with the DODI 5000.02 system acquisition program models ensures that we can fulfill any customer program requirements within their program life cycle time and cost schedule.
