Overview

Terms of Reference (TOR) document as of 06 February. 

A three-day workshop, “Cost in National and Homeland Security Decisions” is intended to bring together Analysts supporting the Requirements Generation, Acquisition, and Resource Allocation processes. The Service Chiefs rely on these processes to ensure a defensible budget that aligns resources to requirements to meet current and future threats under a constrained topline.

The Workshop will offer participants the ability to understand the latest policy and guidance pertaining to cost analysis; learn state-of-the-art tools and techniques; hear from influential members of the Requirements Generation, Acquisition, and Resource Allocation Communities; and share valuable lessons learned during the performance of cost-related activities. Most importantly, the event will enable Analysts to better understand the cost-related needs of the three communities at-large and to identify opportunities to fill those needs.

The Workshop will feature a series of speakers, panel discussions, and presentation tracks, with discussion at the unclassified level. Representation across the Military Services, organizations within the Office of the Secretary of Defense, and major defense contractors will facilitate robust, thought-provoking discussion. Anyone is welcome to participate, and you do not need to be a practicing cost analyst to attend.
