Frank Kendall, acquisition chief at the Defense Department, has updated the agency’s procurement guidelines to offer multiple sample program structures, DoD News reported Wednesday.

“Program managers and program executive officers should use these models as references to assist their thought processes and analysis,” Kendall said, according to the report.

Claudette Roulo writes the revised “DoD Instruction 5000.02” document calls for military acquisitions personnel to tailor buying approaches and strategies to product requirements.

The guidance is also meant to reflect Better Buying Power principles and serve as a tool for intelligence, programming and operational professionals to address warfighters’ technology needs, according to Roulo’s article.

Kendall has also initiated work on a new framework to help the agency manage cybersecurity of the defense acquisition system.
