Summary
For the briefing, we assessed: (1) the extent to which DOD's report identified testing options and known risks of the GMD system, and (2) the extent to which DOD's report assessed the feasibility and cost effectiveness of accelerating GMD flight testing. This report formally transmits the briefing that we provided to the congressional defense committees on December 16, 2013, which is attached as an enclosure, and meets the reporting requirement. To assess the extent to which DOD's report identified testing options, we reviewed DOD's report for testing options if FTG-06b does not demonstrate the successful correction to the problem that caused the FTG-06a failure. We then compared those testing options against MDA's testing plans. To assess the extent to which DOD's report assessed the feasibility and cost effectiveness of accelerating GMD's testing plan, we compared information included in DOD's report to a generally accepted definition of the term feasible (the extent to which something is both possible and likely to occur) and assessed the support provided in DOD's report against GMD's testing performance. We also compared information contained in DOD's report to GAO, Office of Management and Budget, and DOD guidance on the elements of a cost effectiveness assessment. Due to lack of availability of data, we did not independently assess whether accelerating GMD's testing pace was advisable. Finally, we met with MDA and DOD officials to corroborate key acquisition information
