TITLE VIII--ACQUISITION POLICY, ACQUISITION MANAGEMENT, AND RELATED MATTERS

Subtitle B Provisions Relating to Major Defense Acquisition Programs

P. L. 112-

House Conference Report 112-705

SEC. 814. REPEAL OF REQUIREMENT TO REVIEW ONGOING PROGRAMS INITIATED BEFORE ENACTMENT OF MILESTONE B CERTIFICATION AND APPROVAL PROCESS.

Subsection (b) of section 205 of the Weapon Systems Acquisition Reform Act of 2009 (Public Law 111-23; 123 Stat. 1725; 10 U.S.C. 2366b note) is repealed.

 
Repeal of requirement to review ongoing programs initiated before enactment of Milestone B certification and approval process (sec. 814)

The Senate amendment contained a provision (sec. 806) that would repeal the requirement for the Department of Defense to conduct annual reviews of programs initiated before the enactment of the certification requirements in section 2366b of title 10, United States Code to determine whether or not they meet the requirements under that section.

The House bill contained no similar provision.

The House recedes.

Senate Report 112-173

Repeal of requirement to review ongoing programs initiated before enactment of Milestone B certification and approval process (sec. 806)

The committee recommends a provision that would repeal section 205(b) of the Weapon Systems Acquisition Reform Act of 2009 (WSARA) (Public Law 111-23), as recommended by the Department of Defense (DOD). Section 205(b) requires the annual review of programs initiated before the enactment of the certification requirements in section 2366b of title 10, United States Code, in 2006, to determine whether or not they meet certification requirements under that section.

The committee notes that section 819(a) of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (Public Law 112-81) repealed section 204(c) of WSARA, which established the requirement for so-called `catch-up' certifications for programs initiated prior to the enactment of WSARA. As DOD points out, however, the repeal of section 204(c) does not reduce the burden on the Department unless the `essentially redundant obligation under section 205(b)' is also repealed.
