Description
Description: The principles that help successfully apply the SA-CMM are described in this article along with lessons learned from successful and less successful programs using the model; this article describes the path PM Abrams took to improve its overall acquisition process and become the first federal organization to achieve Software Acquisition Capability Maturity Model Level 2; this article includes information from a memo issued by the Under Secretary of Defense to clear up confusion about evolutionary acquisition strategies and the spiral development process; valid points are presented here for using teaming agreements to precisely specify who does what and who is responsible for what when outsourcing information services; work measurement used to control software development needs a fifth core measure, process productivity, which includes the time schedule of people operating over the entire project period; this author takes a hard-line look at the progress the government has made, and has not made, in its attempts to predict software cost, quality, and on-time delivery since 1990 and into the future; this author proposes a method to reduce the impact of lowballing proposals by tying the price offered more closely with the technical and management proposals of a bidder.

Table of Contents
Table of Contents: Software Acquisition: Applying the Software Acquisition Capability Maturity Model; by Dr. Matthew J. Fisher, Wolfhart B. Goethert, and Dr. Lawrence G. Jones. The principles that help successfully apply the SA-CMM are described in this article along with lessons learned from successful and less successful programs using the model -- Achieving SA-CMM Level 2 at PM Abrams; by Col. Donald P. Kotchman, David W. Schepke, Leonard M. Konwinski, Edward Andres, Randy Schneider, and Mike Olsem. This article describes the path PM Abrams took to improve its overall acquisition process and become the first federal organization to achieve Software Acquisition Capability Maturity Model Level 2 -- Policies, News and Updates: Evolutionary Acquisition and Spiral Development. This article includes information from a memo issued by the Under Secretary of Defense to clear up confusion about evolutionary acquisition strategies and the spiral development process -- Software Engineering Technology: Teaming Agreements Are a Lot Like Arranged Marriages; by Quentin W. Fleming. Valid points are presented here for using teaming agreements to precisely specify who does what and who is responsible for what when outsourcing information services -- Control the Software Beast With Metrics-Based Management; by Lawrence H. Putnam and Ware Myers. Work measurement used to control software development needs a fifth core measure, process productivity, which includes the time schedule of people operating over the entire project period -- Open Forum: Did We Lose Our Religion?; by Lloyd K. Mosemann II. This author takes a hard-line look at the progress the government has made, and has not made, in its attempts to predict software cost, quality, and on-time delivery since 1990 and into the future -- Best Value Formula; by David P. Quinn. This author proposes a method to reduce the impact of lowballing proposals by tying the price offered more closely with the technical and management proposals of a bidder -- Online Article: Platform Independent Tactical Data Entry Devices; by Lt. Col. Kenneth L. Alford, et al.
