This handbook provides a comprehensive discussion of the requirements process within the DoD with emphasis on clear, performance-based statements of requirements. The handbook recognizes that a single approach cannot accommodate the varying array of materiel acquisitions. It provides a requirements process, describes the evolution of requirements, provides descriptions of the requirements documents (such as the Mission Needs Statement [MNS], Operational Requirements Document [ORD], Functional Description [FD], Statement of Work [SOW], and System Specification [SS]), explains the requirements generation flow, describes the analysis supporting requirements determination, provides examples of statements of objectives, presents an acquisition case study, and provides a sample SOW.
