Term -Affordability

Affordability is the ongoing assessment of a program to ensure that it is being executed within DoD planning and funding guidelines, has sufficient resources identified and approved in the Future Years Defense Program (FYDP), and is managed based on accurate cost and manpower data. Affordability decisions are made throughout the entire acquisition cycle. The affordability decisions that have the greatest impact on cost are made early in the acquisition cycle. In that regard, the technical solution acquired has the largest impact on cost.
