A Few Realities About BRAC
  • Its in Law – Congress has never overturned a BRAC decision.
  • Significant Personnel Losses will occur during relocation to APG.
  • Successful transfer of mission requires action NOW.
  • Need comprehensive plan to ensure technical skills are retained / replaced in a timely manner.
  • Although we don’t like the decision, we have an opportunity to create a new organization for the future.

overarching challenges
Overarching Challenges
  • Personnel Challenges
    • Attrition starting to occur but only slightly higher than normal rate
    • Some Interns hired this year won’t be productive as domain SME until year of the move (2010)
      • Typical starting grade GS-7 with target grade of GS-12 (30 Months)
      • 3-5 years of specialty training (formal and OTJ) to become a journeyman in particular domain (e.g. radar, SIGINT, engineer)
      • Computer Scientist and Computer Engineering market very competitive. Long term trends ?
    • Significant hiring activities required at time of move
      • Retirement eligibility and workforce survey results suggest more than 60% of current staff will need to be replaced per BRAC moves.
      • Engineering Support and Services Contractors will vie for same talent driving demand

what have we heard so far
What Have We Heard So Far?
  • C4ISR systems are inherently software intensive. Must focus on the software architects early in the development process.
  • Technology Community must feed Requirements Community in the Requirements Definition phase. Critically important in C4ISR due to pace of technology development
    • Modeling and Simulation
    • Prototyping
    • Field Experimentation
  • Links to commercial industry critically important. Must continue and expand.
    • Influence Standards bodies early on.
  • Robust Systems Engineering must feed entire Acquisition Process. (Science and Technology through Sustainment)
