AP5.2.1. Ideally, a working-level
integrated product team (WIPT) should develop the C4ISP. The WIPT should
comprise subject matter experts familiar with the system being acquired, the
intended use of the system, and to the extent possible, the operational and
system architectures within which the system will function. As the
operational and system architectures mature, the WIPT should include
consultations with the principal systems with which the system being
acquired will interface. Assessing the capabilities of interfacing systems
to satisfy the program's operational and derived requirements (Section 4 of
the C4ISP) will require continuing collaboration among subject matter
experts of all systems involved.
AP5.2.2. The DoD Component shall allow
sufficient time to prepare and update the C4ISP so that review of the C4ISP
can be completed before an upcoming milestone or decision review.
Preparation shall include careful consideration of the information,
infrastructure, and interface support requirements levied by and on the
program, and a thorough (and iterative) document review process. Managers of
interfacing programs identified in the C4ISP should review the document
during this process for completeness, and validate shortfalls and solutions
(Section 5 of the C4ISP).
AP5.2.3. DoD Components shall prepare the
C4ISP at the classification level necessary to completely communicate the
required information, without unnecessary reliance on reference documents
that may not be generally available to users or reviewers. DoD Components
shall not keep a C4ISP unclassified merely to facilitate document review;
however, unclassified C4ISPs with classified annexes may sometimes be
appropriate. DoD Components shall consider the implications of compiling
detailed, sensitive but unclassified information and/or proprietary
information in a document that receives wide distribution during review.
AP5.2.4. Before a C4ISP is distributed
for review, DoD Components shall certify that all satellite communications
requirements of the acquisition program have been approved for inclusion in
the SATCOM Emerging Requirements Data Base in accordance with CJCSI 6250.01
