ABSTRACT

CARDS Acquisition Handbook
     This Acquisition Handbook is aimed towards all Government Program
Managers and their support personnel, such as Contracting Officers and
Administrators, procurement attorneys, and program control, involved in
systems, subsystems, and component acquisition.  The concepts discussed
assume that the reader has at least three years experience in
acquisition.  This guidebook will assist them in incorporating software
reuse into all phases of the acquisition life cycle, from concept
exploration to Post Deployment Software Support (PDSS).  It is not a
"cookbook" for every possible reuse issue or strategy, rather it is 
meant to help you develop and tailor reuse programs.  The goal of the 
Acquisition Handbook is to encourage software reuse during the
acquisition and maintenance portions of the life cycle process, ranging
from planning the acquisition strategy through awarding the contract to
managing the effort and follow-on support.  Software reuse guidance will
be presented by providing  methods, examples, recommendations, and
techniques to implement various reuse strategies throughout the
acquisition life cycle.  The implications and effects of software reuse
on the technical, management, cost, schedule, and risk aspects of a
program/system during the acquisition process will be the foundation of
this document.
