Summary The A-12 was the Navy's top aviation priority. The carrier-based stealth bomber was designed to replace the aging and crippled A-6 Intruder. In 1991 the program was cancelled due to cost overruns, schedule delays, technical problems, and a culture that suppressed bad news about the A-12 from Congress. To increase moral awareness, students are required to reflect, write about, and discuss the facts and moral implications of an ethical dilemma experienced by a cost analyst whose cost estimate about the A-12 was suppressed by supervisors in her chain of command. Students use the IMA Statement of Ethical Professional Practice as a framework to explore applicable values, standards, and actions. This note provides information on the learning objective, assessment method, and comments relevant to the requirements
