Mitre Corp. and the Aerospace Corp. have published a free online guide intended to help federal acquisition officials during all phases of the acquisition process.

The Key Questions for Acquisition Success guide is targeted for program managers, chief engineers and contract specialists responsible for forming and managing acquisition programs, Mitre said Tuesday.

Both organizations are making practitioners available to help the acquisition committee use the guide, which is intended to complement existing guidance and management tools, Mitre said.MitreLogo

“In complex environments like acquisitions, even experts can let details slip through the cracks, which can lead to cost growth or schedule delay,” said Lou Metzger, MITRE’s corporate chief engineer and MITRE fellow.

“Just as a pilot uses a checklist to walk through the key steps to takeoff, flight, landing, and taxiing, a program manager needs a checklist to make sure none of the critical factors for success are overlooked or ignored,” said Rand Fisher, Aerospace Corp. senior vice president of systems planning, engineering and quality.
