- Take Risk And Manage It!

ussocom acquisition challenges
USSOCOM Acquisition Challenges
  • Diversity of Platforms, Users, Systems, Operating Environments, and Program Management Structures
  • Mandate to Rapidly Respond to Emergent Warfighter Requirements
    • 80% Solutions
    • Take Risk and Manage It
    • Many USSOCOM Systems Installed in Platforms Owned and Developed by Others (Services, MILDEPS)
    • Contractor-off-the-shelf / Non-developmental Items

How Can Industry Respond to SOF Needs?
  • Brief Us on Your Capabilities
    • Talk to the TILO (Mr. David Johnson, (813) 826-9482, http://soal.socom.mil)
  • Respond to:
    • Solicitations from USSOCOM and our Industry Partners
    • Technology Broad Area Announcements (BAAs) from USSOCOM and our Partners
    • Small Business Innovation Research BAAs
    • Defense Challenge Program BAAs

operational test and evaluation how we operate
Operational Test and EvaluationHow We Operate
  • Traditional Acquisition Efforts are Tested IAW Key Performance Parameters.
  • On Urgent Deployment Acquisitions, We Pursue Capabilities Based Testing: Document Kit Capability, Capture Any Tactics, Techniques, Procedures (TTP) We Can, Ensure it Meets Safety Parameters and Deploy it Either Into the AOR or to Units Due to Rotate as Part of Their Train-up
  • Our Independent Evaluators Witness Testing Conducted by Operational Testing Activities (OTA), and While We Highly Consider Their Conclusions Regarding Operational Suitability and Effectiveness, it Remains the Call of Our Independent Evaluators
  • Our OT&E Office is Separated by Center from SOAL- This ensures The Fox is Not in Charge of the Hen House
