Specifically, the Lead will:
  • Understand, analyze, and report on requirements from the Acquisitions, Requirements, and Intelligence communities
  • Assist in aligning the organization to support Life Cycle Mission data requirements and acquisition intelligence needs
  • Assist in the assessment of the organization’s ‘as is’ processes, as they relate to the PRMF effort
