Organization: DODD
Publication Date: 2 May 2002
Status: inactive
Page Count: 57
scope:

This Instruction applies to:

The Office of the Secretary of Defense, the Military Departments, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Combatant Commands, the Inspector General of the Department of Defense, the Defense Agencies (see paragraph E2.1.11., below), the DoD Field Activities, and all other organizational entities within the Department of Defense (hereafter referred to collectively as "the DoD Components").

All IT, including NSS, acquired, procured (systems or services), or operated by any component of the Department of Defense, to include:

All IT and NSS defense acquisition programs, defense technology IT and NSS projects, and IT and NSS pre-acquisition demonstrations (e.g., Advanced Concept Technology Demonstrations, Advanced Technology Demonstrations, and Joint Warrior Interoperability Demonstration Gold Nuggets when selected for acquisition or procurement), Joint Experimentation, and Joint Tests and Evaluations; non-5000 Series IT and NSS acquisitions or procurements (e.g., the Commander in Chief (CINC) Command and Control Initiative Program, CINC Initiatives Fund, CINC Field Assessments, Military Exploitation of Reconnaissance and Technology Programs, and Tactical Exploitation of National Capabilities Programs); and post-acquisition (fielded) IT and NSS systems.

All inter- and intra-DoD Component IT and NSS that exchange and use information to enable units or forces to operate effectively in joint, combined, coalition, and interagency operations and simulations.

All IT and NSS acquired, procured, or operated by DoD intelligence agencies, DoD Component intelligence elements, and other DoD intelligence activities engaged in direct support of DoD missions. This Directive recognizes that special measures may be required for protection/handling of foreign intelligence or counterintelligence information, or other need to know information. Accordingly, implementation of this Directive must be tailored to comply with separate and coordinated Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) Directives and Intelligence Community policies.

All DoD IT and NSS external information exchange interfaces with other U.S. Government Departments and Agencies, combined and coalition partners, multinational alliances (e.g., North Atlantic Treaty Organization).

PURPOSE. This Instruction:

Reissues reference (a) to implement updated policy and responsibilities for interoperability and supportability of Information Technology (IT), including National Security Systems (NSS), as defined in reference (b).

Implements an approach that considers both materiel (acquisition or procurement) and non-materiel (doctrine, organizational, training, leadership, and personnel) aspects to ensure life-cycle interoperability and supportability of IT and NSS throughout the Department of Defence (DoD). This approach ensures that information is available to the Department of Defence in an assured, timely, useable, understandable, and cost-effective manner.

Implements an outcome-based, mission area focused process whereby IT and NSS interoperability and supportability requirements for new, modified, and fielded systems are documented, coordinated, implemented, verified, and approved to achieve an integrated, and secure IT and NSS infrastructure supporting global operations across the peace-conflict spectrum.
