How to use this site

Each page in this pathway presents a wealth of curated knowledge from acquisition policies, guides, templates, training, reports, websites, case studies, and other resources. It also provides a framework for functional experts and practitioners across DoD to contribute to the collective knowledge base. This site aggregates official DoD policies, guides, references, and more.

DoD and Service policy is indicated by a BLUE vertical line.

Directly quoted material is preceeded with a link to the Reference Source.

Software Policy Alliance

Team of Teams

Key Partners: Unity of Effort for National Security

  • Core Fusion Cell supporting larger Software Alliance; grow into deadly-effective network; achieve more together than alone
  • More Connections = More Collective Problem-Solving
  • More Connections = More Critical Feedback

Why you?

  • You are empowered and Front Line for the acquisition community
  • You are closest to problem

What will we do?

  • Enable successful SWP execution and longevity
  • Focus on solving pain points/problems
  • Prioritize and attack enterprise backlog of SWP impediments
  • Ask USD and SAE as needed for top cover & empowerment

Competitive advantage of an alliance / network?

  • Connecting key influencers to co-develop smarter, bureaucracy-busting guidance & decision support for MAJCOMs and PEOs
  • Rapid info-flow unhampered by bureaucracy and silos

Fusion Cells rapidly acquire, interpret, and distribute actionable information to acquisition units and personnel closest to the problem.  We turn raw data into effective action as quickly as possible.


Common purpose, shared consciousness, trust, and empowered execution. 

  Bias for Action

A&S/Acquisition Enablers (AE) and the SW Modernization Senior Steering Group are conducting an outreach campaign to remove PEO impediments and enable adoption of the SWP/DevSecOps.

Request a SWP or SW Modernization Roadshow

A&S/Acquisition Enablers (AE) and the SW Modernization Senior Steering Group are conducting an outreach campaign to remove PEO impediments and enable adoption of the SWP/DevSecOps.

Perhaps your PEO wants to modernize and navigate the Adaptive Acquisition Framework/SWP, or understand how SWP processes can work in embedded and safety-critical domains?

We offer the following modules that can be combined into a 120-minute event:

  • Intro to the SWP 5000.87 SWP: 60 minutes
  • SW Modernization that enables .87 (DevSecOps; Cloud; cATO): 30-60 minutes
  • The Adaptive Acquisition Framework: 15-30 minutes
  • Dev*Ops and Embedded Weapon Systems: 30 minutes (Available Soon)

We can also tailor trainings on key topics (Requirements, Test & Evaluation, Cost Estimating, etc.). Let us know the type of event you would like us to host, questions you would like addressed, length of time you have, and preferred hosting method (MS Teams, Zoom, Citrix Webex)
