Who We Are

The Cost Assessment Data Enterprise (CADE) is an Office of the Secretary of Defense Cost Assessment and Program Evaluation (OSD CAPE) initiative to increase analyst productivity and effectiveness by collecting, organizing and displaying data in an integrated single web-based application, improving data quality, reporting compliance and source data transparency. CADE aims to provide the government analyst with a single, authoritative website utilizing data visualization methods to house source data which are easily searchable and retrievable. CADE offers the analyst a reduction in the time spent on ad-hoc data collection and validation, allowing more time for in-depth, meaningful analysis in support of DoD’s mission.
