As team members and stakeholders involved in identifying the

As inferred previously,
identifying project risks is the process of defining which risks might impact a
project and documenting the features of those risks for impending risk response
planning (Project Management Institute, 2009). The identification of project
risks is an integrative system that should incorporate the entire project team
and appropriate project stakeholders in order to familiarize them with the
different types of risks the project will likely encounter and to develop and
sustain a sense of ownership among the group for the risks and for the
associated response actions incorporated to address those risks. Project risk
identification should include an evaluation of both internal and external
factors, such as organizational culture, environmental implications, and the
project management plan, including the project scope, quality, cost, schedule,
and etc. (Associative Learning, n.d.). Project constituents should also pay
close attention to the project deliverables, constraints, assumptions, resource
plan, cost/effort estimates, work breakdown structure, and other central
aspects of the project. Due to the large scale implications of this project,
the various team members and stakeholders involved in identifying the
individual risks associated with this project are broken-down departmentally.
The offices that will participate in project risk identification are the Office
of the Under Secretary of Defense Acquisition, Technology and Logistics
(USD-AT&L), the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Systems
Engineering (DASD-SE), the Component Acquisition Executives (CAEs), the Program
Executive Officers (PEOs), and the Defense Acquisition University (DAU). Each
given department will examine appropriate case studies, review current risk
management curricula and recommend updates, pilot technical risk peer reviews,
and provide independent feedback prior to the establishment of major milestones
