The scope of this project is to examine the technical, financial, scheduling and implementation aspects for Program Managers who manage hand- and measuring-tool-intensive programs. Initially, the history, definition, interpretation and intent of the Berry Amendment will be examined to establish a basis for recommendations. The discussion will transition into cost, schedule and budget implications for tool-intensive programs to include how other military services deal with the Berry Amendment restrictions. Finally, specific recommendations will be provided that address practical methods to deal with Berry Amendment restrictions. As a result of this project, the Army will better understand how to meet customer requirements while still executing within the spirit and intent of the Berry Amendment.
