SOW 3.20 Program Support
Under HQ0147-10-D-0020 (Sub contact MiDAESS-2012.0020.012 Task Order # DOB02-MDW-01) MDW applies strategic planning, business, financial management and technical disciplines to support program acquisition. The strategic planning process developed by MDW, used to support the Director of Operations and Comptroller of MDA, applies business, financial management and technical disciplines to acquisition programs thereby delivering missile defense capabilities to the Warfighter. MDW develops program funding alternatives based on the MDA Director’s guidance and turns the alternatives into an executable budget based on the Director’s decisions. This includes providing and using the tools necessary to support high level decision making. MDW works closely with MDA’s leadership to assess program options and trade-offs, balance multiple budget alternatives and quickly respond to high-priority tasks from OSD and other external stakeholders. MDW has created an efficient and well-organized cell of dedicated MDA-recognized experts to provide trusted and essential “one minute” response time to the Agency.
The support MDW provides encompasses the MDA’s headquarters and its individual programs, and can be broadly characterized with the following steps:
- Translation of strategic goals into resource decisions, leading to a budget;
- Tracking of all budget decisions to ensure funding changes are based technical rationale and consistent with acquisition objectives;
- Development of budget documentation to explain and justify the budget, including budget briefings for the Secretary of Defense’s Deputies Management Action Group (DMAG), the 3-Star Programmers, the Missile Defense Executive Board (MDEB), the Service Boards of Directors, and the MDA Budget Overview;
- Defense of the budget submissions as it is reviewed by Congressional committees, including budget sections to the Director’s prepared Congressional testimony;
- Execution of an appropriated budget, including monitoring funding obligation and expenditures;
- Implementation of budget changes, either as a result of fact-of-life adjustment or other external guidance, to include Above Threshold Reprogramming (ATR) and Below Threshold Reprogramming (BTR) requests; and
- Maintenance of a budget database to ensure all traceability of Agency budget.
