Abstract
This project defines specific program manager (PM) responsibilities, PM authorities, and acquisition stakeholder authorities based on Department of Defense (DoD) acquisition policies and Army regulations. It maps PM processes, revealing the conflicts and issues with existing definitions, and identifies opportunities to improve the Army acquisition process. Selected primary documentation of DoD and Army regulations, DoD and Army directives, specific program acquisition documentation, supplemental data from other federal organizations, and published research are used to identify the organizational structure, responsibilities, authorities, and acquisition processes of the U.S. Army. The analysis determines how the mission aligns or conflicts with the specific authorities prescribed throughout Army policies and regulations. Furthermore, the analysis uses IDEF0 function modeling to outline the process mechanisms that serve to enforce alignment or, conversely, to promote conflict between the PM’s mission and authority, and acquisition stakeholder authority.
