Department of Defense Selected Acquisition Reports (SARs) – December 2017
The Department of Defense (DoD) has released details on major defense acquisition program cost, schedule, and performance changes since the December 2016 reporting period. This information is based on the comprehensive annual Selected Acquisition Reports (SARs) for the first quarter of FY 2018, as updated by the President’s FY 2019 budget submitted to Congress on February 12, 2018.
SARs summarize the latest estimates of cost, schedule, and performance status. These reports are prepared annually in conjunction with submission of the President’s Budget. Subsequent quarterly exception reports are required only for those programs experiencing unit cost increases of at least 15 percent or schedule delays of at least six months. Quarterly SARs are also submitted for initial reports, final reports, and for programs that are rebaselined at major milestone decisions.
