Air Forceńˇ╗s Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle Competitive Procurement
Christina T. Chaplain (au)
The Dept. of Defense's (DOD) Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle (EELV) program is the primary provider of launch vehicles and services for U.S. military and intelligence satellites and is also used to launch civilian and commercial satellites. An independent cost estimate projects the program will cost about $70 billion through 2030. From 2006 to 2013, the program acquired launch services from a single provider -- the United Launch Alliance (ULA). In Dec. 2013, DOD signed a contract modification with ULA, committing the government to buy 35 launch vehicle booster cores over a five-year period, and the capability to launch them. In addition to the 35 cores DOD is committed to buy from ULA between FY 2013 and 2017, DOD has set aside up to 14 launches for competition among all certified launch vehicle providers. This report addresses: (1) What insight did DOD have into launch costs under past EELV contracts? (2) How do recent changes to EELV contracts affect accounting for costs? (3) How is DOD compensated for costs when ULA sells launches to other customers?; (4) What are the implications if DOD requires competitors to submit offers using the same structure it currently uses with ULA or a commercial approach? Figures. This is a print on demand report.
