Abstract : This after-action report summarizes events and processes involved in performing the evaluation of proposals for the T800-XX-800 Engine. The acquisition strategy established earlier during development of the Request for Proposal (RFP DAAJ09-84-R-A955) was implemented as described in the approved evaluation plan. It is intended that this document provide highlights of the evaluation activity, describe the impact of the Army's new way of doing business, and recommend improvements that can be applied to future procurements. The emphasis is on the source selection process, not on the recommend winners, their scores, or their standings. Although the T800 is considered to be a generic power plant, its first application will be on the Army's new family of light helicopters (LHX). Discussions of LHX engine requirements are provided in the previous RFP, its after-action report, and other LHX project documents and will not be repeated here. However, the acquisition strategy and overall approach are a fallout of LHX planning, and this document reflects the results of early-on decisions coordinated and approved at the Army's highest leadership levels, and can serve as the last step in the audit trail.
