Test & Evaluation Master Plan (TEMP)2880173/3/2022 7:39:49 PMDocuments the overall structure and objectives of the Test and Evaluation (T&E) program programs must prepare a TEMP to document Test and Evaluation for each phase completion Article/quick.aspxFalse<div class="ExternalClass385249AFB1994B67B9B5C32861D7ABF6">Documents the overall structure and objectives of the Test and Evaluation (T&amp;E) program. It provides a framework within which to generate detailed T&amp;E plans and documents schedule and resource implications associated with the T&amp;E program. The TEMP identifies the necessary Developmental Test and Evaluation (DT&amp;E), Operational Test and Evaluation (OT&amp;E), and Live Fire Test and Evaluation (LFT&amp;E) activities. It relates program schedule, test management strategy and structure, and required resources to&#58; Critical Operational Issues (COIs), Critical Technical Parameters (CTPs), objectives and thresholds documented in the Capability Development Document (CDD), evaluation criteria, and milestone decision points. For multi- Service or joint programs, a single integrated TEMP is required. Component-unique content requirements, particularly evaluation criteria associated with COIs, can be addressed in a component-prepared annex to the basic TEMP.</div>
