a. It is DOD
policy that all IT and NSS and major modifications to existing IT and NSS will
be compliant with the Clinger-Cohen Act, DOD interoperability regulations and
policies, and the most current version of the DOD Information Technology
Standards Registry (DISR). Establishing interoperability and supportability in
a DOD system is a continuous process that must be managed throughout the
lifecycle of the system. The NR-KPP is comprised of the following elements:
compliance with the Net-Centric Operations and Warfare (NCOW) Reference Model
(RM), applicable Global Information Grid (GIG) Key Interface Profiles (KIP),
DOD information assurance requirements, and supporting integrated architecture
products required to assess information exchange and use for a given
document explains the processes necessary to implement full-spectrum
interoperability from an integrated and net-centric approach. To accomplish
this, consideration will be placed on information needs, information
timeliness, information assurance and net-enabled concepts using integrated
architectures for a given capability. The NR-KPP is a mandatory element of all
JCIDS documents and is required to receive interoperability certification.
and processes in this instruction are mandatory for all ACAT, non-ACAT and
other fielded capabilities. In most cases, this document will refer to references a and b for formats of
capability documents. This document will provide additional information as it
applies to supportability certification.
d. The J-6
certification process is an integral part of the JCIDS process.
Interoperability requirements certifications granted under the former
requirements generation system remain valid except as detailed below:
I-KPP contained in capstone requirements documents (CRDs) and Operational
Requirements Documents (ORDs), already approved or directed by the JROC
prior to JCIDS implementation, will continue to be valid until superseded by
completed integrated architectures. The new JCIDS supports new CRDs directed
by the JROC. Those new CRDs will develop their NR-KPP in accordance with
(IAW) the procedures documented in Enclosure D. The I-KPP currently cited in
CJCSI 3170.01C and CJCSM 3170.01 has been superseded by the NR-KPP and meets
the intent of JROC direction.
Needs Statement (MNSs) that have initiated staffing in the Joint C4I Program
Assessment Tool will continue through the normal staffing process; however,
J-6 will assess MNS but will not certify for interoperability requirements
certification. J-6 will only concur or nonconcur based upon interoperability
concerns and implications. IAW references
a and b, no new MNS will be accepted for staffing.
references a and b, ORDs will be accepted for staffing IAW the current CJCSI
3170.01B, dated 15 April 2001, for 6 months after signing CJCSI 3170.01C,
i.e., until 24 December 2003, unless otherwise extended by the JROC.
Therefore, I KPP for those documents will be IAW CJCSM 3170.01M Enclosures B and H. Enclosure H will be superseded
automatically upon the termination of ORDs on 24 December 2003.
JCIDS documents submitted for review and interoperability certification will
be submitted into the J-8 Knowledge Management/Decision Support (KM/DS)
tool. Users should contact the J-8 at 703-695-7065 for details.
(5) All ISPs for all
ACAT programs will be submitted into the OSD Joint C4I Program Assessment
Tool (JCPAT) tool for review on the SIPRNET at
declared unsuitable for information sharing due to national security
considerations, for purposes of interoperability and supportability, all IT
and NSS developed for use by US forces are for joint, combined, and coalition
use. The term “joint force” throughout this document refers to a force
composed of significant elements, assigned or attached, of two or more
Military Departments operating under a single joint force commander (JP 1-02
and references e and g).
Interoperability and supportability of IT and NSS requirements for ACAT
programs will be determined during the JCIDS validation process (references a
through e and g) and this instruction and will be updated as necessary
throughout the acquisition period, deployment and operational life of a
system. Interoperability and supportability of IT and NSS requirements for
non-ACAT and fielded programs will be determined by the requirements authority
IAW references c, d, e and g and this
instruction and will be updated as necessary throughout the acquisition
period, deployment, and operational life of a
