                                    The Rational Unified Process (RUP) is a rigorous software development process advocated by the Rational Software Corporation.

                                    Progressive Acquisition Workflow

                                    As you will recall, Part II described a two-level contracting approach consisting of a Head Contract and a series of Contract Work Orders (CWOs). Now we will look at some aspects of the primary contracting activities involved in developing the Head Contract and pursuing the CWOs. For readers who are familiar with RUP terminology, we can express the workflow, activities, and artifacts for the Head Contract and first CWO as shown in Figure 1.

                                    Figure 1: Workflow, Activities, and Artifacts for Head Contract and First Contract Work Order (CWO)
                                    Figure 1: Workflow, Activities, and Artifacts for Head Contract and First Contract Work Order (CWO)

                                    For subsequent CWOs and the remaining project life span, we can express these things in a similar view, but we would modify the figure to look like the one in Figure 2. Note that most of the work associated with the Head Contract has been eliminated, and this workflow focuses specifically on the next CWO.

                                    However, our real goal is to help technical professionals talk to procurement personnel, so let us now discuss these aspects of contracting in the traditional terms of the contracting industry rather than in RUP terms. Indeed, some terms are used quite differently in these different contexts.

                                    Throughout our discussion, we will view these aspects of contracting from the acquirer's perspective.
