Better Buying Power established new policies and processes to ensure programs are affordable. While the new Interim DoDI 5000.02 lays out concepts and processes for determining and controlling long-range affordability, some confusion remains on these fundamental concepts and how they relate to program baselines, cost estimation, should-cost, and other planning processes and cost controls. This talk lays out the fundamental affordability concepts, some myths, and engages the audience on practical implications of affordability for both government and industry.
