      Operational Sense and Respond Logistics: Coevolution of an Adaptive Enterprise Capability (local copy), concept paper posted at the Office of Force Transformation, 6 May 2004

    • AFMC Summer '02 Commander's Conference included discussion of the Capabilities Review and Risk Assessment (CRRA) concept, mentioned in the Feb Chief's Sight Picture, quoted below, and how it would figure into the PPBS system --

        ... Air Staff has designed a new review to replace the QAPR--we call this new approach a Capabilities Review and Risk Assessment (CRRA). The focus of the CRRA will shift from a program review to a review of how our programs contribute to warfighting capabilities and effects. As with all aspects of our transformation, CRRAs will be centered around Task Force CONOPS.

        Let me briefly describe the logic behind the CRRA construct. For our first time out of the chute, we’ll review the capabilities that support the GSTF. The CRRA will evaluate the health and risk of each of the required GSTF capabilities over the next 20 years. To accomplish this, we will review acquisition programs and discuss disconnects and prioritization in relation to how the programs support GSTF capabilities. The bottom-line goal for the CRRA is to give senior USAF leadership an operational, capabilities-based focus for acquisition program decisionmaking.
