To clarify a point made during the call on the 19th:  The toolset envisioned for this solution is to be used during the initial acquisition activity, to set the request for proposal.  It is intended to be provided at an intial level of technical maturity to the contractors to propose against.   From that the contractors would provide back a refined technical and business model as part of their proposal.  The selected contractor and the government would then continue to use the model during the course of the execution to validate design assumptions and refine the deliverable being provided.  Or, is the model to be primarily the business process model, with little emphasis on the technical solution using modeling which could require advancd engineering skills?
