UNITED STATES ARMY

GCSS AoA & BCA

CHALLENGE

As the Global Combat Support System-Army (GCSS-Army) program approached a breach of its critical cost and schedule parameters, Congress mandated that the Army provide a feasible way ahead for accomplishing the Army’s tactical logistics capabilities.

ACTION

SERVICES PROVIDED

ZYGOS conducted a Congressionally mandated AoA and BCA on the $4B Acquisition Category (ACAT) I GCSS-Army program. The study leveraged ZYGOS’ seven-step AoA methodology that included development of a weighted evaluation model with rigorous assessment criteria to compare the current program and three alternative courses of action as directed by the Congress (modifying legacy systems, hybrid GCSS-Army and legacy systems, Army adoption of GCSS-Marine Corps). As part of this project, ZYGOS developed a detailed cost and benefit estimating model to support the analysis and recommendation.
