The Central Test and Evaluation Investment Program (CTEIP) was established in 1990 by the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), in response to Congressional direction, to provide a corporate investment approach to meeting Service and Defense Agency Test and Evaluation (T&E) needs. This approach to the allocation of test resources increases interoperability between the Services, and interconnectivity among the test centers and ranges. It serves to focus T&E expertise on test requirements that are of the highest priority. The CTEIP project selection process consists of a cyclic approach in which the Services and Defense Agencies solicit T&E needs, propose solutions to those needs, and then formally project proposals. Program Management Offices (PMOs) are not directly solicited for potential project solutions addressing direct operational test needs, yet, the PMOs are facing significantly reduced T&E funding. Knowledge of the CTEIP program and the proposal submission process should aid the PMOs in the planning and execution of their Operational Test Programs. This thesis reviews the CTEIP and evaluates the extent to which PMOs are involved in the submission of T&E needs, and the value of PMO involvement in CTEIP project selection process.
