JOINT MILITARY INTELLIGENCE REQUIREMENTS CERTIFICATION
|Publication Date:||10 June 2010|
Purpose. The purpose of this instruction is to establish the policies and procedures for Joint Military Intelligence Requirements Certification of capabilities being reviewed under the Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System (JCIDS), as specified by the CJCS 3170.01 series directives (references a and b). The procedures established by this instruction support the Joint Staff Director for Intelligence (J-2) and the Intelligence Review and Certification Office (J282/IRCO or IRCO) in identifying, assessing, and certifying capabilities reviewed pursuant to the JCIDS process. The intelligence review process supports programs in the JCIDS acquisition process and is based on a collaborative, analytical process that evaluates what proposed capabilities will require from, or contribute to, the intelligence enterprise throughout their acquisition life cycle. The intelligence certification is a statement of adequacy based on previously completed reviews and assesses whether the projected intelligence architecture will be available, suitable, and sufficient to support those needs. This instruction establishes:
a. Policies, procedures, and criteria for intelligence review and certification of all JCIDS documents, and of information support plans (ISPs) in accordance with the CJCS 3170.01 series, the current version of the CJCSI 6212.01 series, DODI 4630.8, and the Acquisition Knowledge Sharing System Deskbook (references a, b, d, h, and 1).
b. Policies and procedures for Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) validation of threat intelligence support to the JCIDS analysis and document development process, as required by the CJCS 3170.01 series (references a and b).
a. This instruction:
(1) Applies to initial capabilities documents (ICDs), capability development documents (CDDs), and capability production documents (CPDs), and updates or annexes (hereafter collectively referred to as "JCIDS documents"). All programs designated as Joint Requirements Oversight Council (JROC) interest ("JROC interest") and "Joint Integration" joint potential designators (JPDs) by J-8 shall undergo intelligence certification according to this instruction, unless a written waiver has been granted by J282jIRCO (see the definition of "JPD" in the Glossary for an explanation of JROC interest and Joint Integration designations). Waiver requests will be considered on a caseby- case basis, and such requests shall be evaluated on the degree to which a program or capability is determined to consume, produce, process, or handle intelligence (throughout any and all stages of the acquisition life cycle). Document sponsors should use enclosures C and E as primary guides to assess whether, or to what extent, programs and capabilities produce, consume, process, or handle intelligence. Sponsors must coordinate waiver requests directly with the responsible J282jIRCO staff member prior to submission of a sponsor's program document into the JCIDS process or, if the waiver is sought for a particular phase or milestone, prior to that given phase or milestone (see Enclosure B for an explanation of the review process, including milestones and phases).
(2) Applies to all entities subject to the JCIDS review process, in accordance with the CJCS 3170.01 series, which includes the Services, combatant commands, Joint Staff, Defense and national intelligence agencies, and joint and combined activities.
(3) Applies to agencies and organizations preparing and submitting Information Support Plans (ISPs) in accordance with DODI 5000.2, DODI 4630.8, and the Acquisition Knowledge Sharing System Deskbook (references f, h, and 1). For simplicity and ease of reference, JCIDS documents and ISP documents shall be referred to collectively as "program documents" when appropriate.
b. Documents classified above Secret Collateral will also comply with this instruction but may be tailored as necessary to account for special security handling considerations (see the CJCSM 3170.01 series, reference b, for additional guidance).
c. This instruction complements and does not preclude the need to conform to the guidance and direction on defense acquisition, the JCIDS process, or other directions concerning intelligence support to acquisition (see the CJCS 3170.01 series, the current version of the CJCSI 6212.01 series, DODD 5000.1, DODD 5000.2, and the Acquisition Knowledge Sharing System Deskbook -- references a, b, d, e, f, and 1, respectively).
