Abstract: The Institute for Defense Analyses worked with the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) to invent Foundational Assumptions and Associated Observables (FAAOs). FAAOs are a tool to help oversight organizations monitor progress in acquisition programs between milestones. FAAOs are similar to the Framing Assumptions required in the 2015 version of the DoD's acquisition regulations, but they are created by and for oversight organizations, not those executing the programs. In addition to inventing the process, we also delivered five sets of FAAOs to the OSD for use in oversight, which was an essential step in creating the process.
