The Coast Guard¿s Deepwater Program has experienced serious performance and mgmt. problems. Deepwater is intended to replace or modernize Coast Guard vessels, aircraft, and the communications and electronic systems that link them together.

The Coast Guard awarded a contract in 2002 to lead a system integrator, Integrated Coast Guard Systems, to execute the program using a system-of-systems approach. In response to a Senate report, this report assesses whether the changes the Coast Guard is making to its mgmt. and acquisition

The Deepwater Program includes efforts to build or modernize ships and aircraft and to procure other capabilities. In 2002, the Coast Guard contracted with Integrated Coast Guard Systems (ICGS) to manage the acquisition as systems integrator. After a series of project failures, the Coast Guard announced in April 2007 that it would take over the lead role, with future work on individual assets bid competitively, and a program baseline of $24.2 billion was set. This report addresses: (1) efforts to manage Deepwater; (2) changes in cost and schedule of the assets; and (3) efforts to build an acqu
