ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the reassessment of the costs and capabilities of the U.S. Coast Guard as a Deepwater Systems Integrator. The Coast Guard has applied its disciplined management process contained in the Major Systems Acquisition Manual (MSAM). However, it failed to meet its goal of complete the process. Moreover, U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) made recommendations including the management of Deepwater, changes in costs and schedule of the assets, and an acquisition workforce.
