    I understand DOTMLPF-P, but what is DTLOMPF-P and DOTMLP? And have you ever heard of DOTLMSPF-P or did someone just make a mistake? Thank you very much!


    Answer

    The Defense Acquisition University (DAU) Glossary of Defense Acronyms & Terms, 13th Edition, dated November 2009 defines the acronym DOTMLPF as Doctrine, Organization, Training, Materiel, Leadership and Education, Personnel, and Facilities (Department of Defense).  In addition, it further defines it as: DOTMLPF (Doctrine, Organization, Training, Materiel, Leadership and Education, Personnel, and Facilities) Analysis - Possible non-materiel solutions identified as a result of a capabilities-based assessment (CBA) to satisfy a capability gap. (CJCSI 3170.01G).
     
    If we check CJCSI 3170.01G in the Glossary enclosure, we find DOTMLPF but not the other variations that you list.

    My best suggestion is to contact the source of the briefing and inquire what they mean by their various acronyms.
