The DoD Cost Estimating Guide (v2.0), published January 2022, is an update to the guide previously published in January 2021. It provides the cost community with a DoD-level resource for a consistent and repeatable cost estimating process guide (not mandate) developed by the OSD Cost Assessment & Program Evaluation (CAPE). It was designed to be both a starting point for new cost estimators and an excellent resource for the experienced cost analyst.
Features of the DoD Cost Estimating Guide v2:
Expected to evolve and be updated over time, the DoD Cost Estimating Guide was created in collaboration with the Air Force, Army, Navy, and Marine Corps cost communities, as well as Missile Defense Agency (MDA), National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), Naval Postgraduate School (NPS), Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT), Defense Acquisition University (DAU), Government Accountability Office (GAO), and National Aeronautics & Space Administration (NASA).
