The LCSP Outline exists to help you visualize the critical elements of a Life-Cycle Sustainment Plan, and to think systematically when developing and communicating your plan across the enterprise. This online resource is provided as information only. In addition to the outline below, programs should also consult
DoD Instruction 5000.02, Enclosure 6,
their respective Service Guidance, the
Defense Acquisition Guide (DAG) Chapter 4
and other sections of this web site. This updated Version 2.0 was issued by DoD in January 2017, and augments the original September 2011 version issued by the USD(AT&L).
This resource has the latest thinking and alternative examples for each LCSP section. It is not meant to be a fixed template to simply copy and paste information into - please tailor the LCSP to meet your unique program needs. Consequently, font sizes, typefaces, and colors for the tables are not mandated.
