The U.S. Air Force (USAF) has recognized the needs for owning the program and technical knowledge within the Air Force concerning the systems being acquired to ensure success. This paper extends the previous work done by the authors [1-2] on the “Resilient Program Technical Baseline Framework for Future Space Systems” and "Portfolio Decision Support Tool (PDST)” to the development and implementation of the Program and Technical Baseline (PTB) Tracking Tool (PTBTL) for the DOD acquisition life cycle. The paper describes the “simplified” PTB tracking model with a focus on the preaward phases and discusses how to implement this model in PDST.
