The SSPP must include details of those methods the contractor will use to implement each systems safety task called for in the government-provided Program Safety Plan, the Statement of Work, and those safety-related documents listed in the contract for compliance. Examples of safety-related documents include Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations; DO-264, Guidelines for Approval of the Provision and Use of Air Traffic Services Supported by Data Communications; DO-278A, Guidelines for Communication, Navigation, Surveillance, and Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM) Systems Software Integrity Assurance; DO-178C, Software Considerations in Airborne Systems and Equipment Certification; and other national standards, such as the National Fire Protection Association. The SSPP will list all requirements, activities, and the appropriate related tasks required to satisfy the systems safety program objectives. A complete breakdown of systems safety tasks, subtasks, and resource allocations of each program element through the term of the contract also needs to be included. When designated in the contract, a baseline SSPP will be required at the beginning of the first contractual phase (e.g., Demonstration and Validation or Full-Scale Development) and updated at the beginning of each subsequent phase (e.g., Production) to describe the tasks and responsibilities of the follow-on phase.
