Abstract : The F-15 System Program Office (SPO) concurrently contracted for the development and initial production quantities for the -4 Conformal Fuel Tanks (CFT's) and associated bomb racks to be delivered with the F-15E aircraft. The study reviews the program history, contractual implementation problem identification, and corrective action. The study concludes that as a result of the F-15 SPO implementing the concurrent acquisition strategy the government saved valuable procurement time, achieved greater visibility into design/development costs, and was better prepared to resolve individual development problems associated with the CFT and bomb rack programs. Keywords: Air Force procurement. (Author)
