Purpose and Overview
In accordance with DoD Directive 8115.01, the Air Force uses Portfolio Management to control its Information Technology investments using the Mission Area structure as the common framework and lexicon for the organization of Information Technology portfolios. Information Technology Portfolio Management has three main goals: maximize the value of the portfolio against the objectives of DoD; balance the portfolio against resource constraints; link the portfolio to strategy. An essential element of Portfolio Management is Capital Planning and Investment Control of Information Technology investments. Through Portfolio Management and proper Capital Planning and Investment Control, Information Technology investments deliver the most capability to Airmen to conduct operations across all Mission Areas.
