DD-2554-1 for software?

View Discussion
QUESTION SCENARIO
February 7, 2023 - 12:38pm

QUESTION

Is there an alternative to form DD-2554-1 (TDP Option Selection Worksheet) for software?  While source code does seem to be a component of MIL-STD-31000B (TDP) the form used to set requirements for deliverables does not really fit.  Looking to see if anyone knows of a better form or how to bend it to the requirement for a software deliverable. ​

OUSD DevSecOps Whitepaper
Document Type:
Document
Modified: Changed by Content Author No Reply on
Summary

OUSD DevSecOps Whitepaper is intended to act as a best practice guide for Department of Defense (DoD) programs that are interested in practicing Development, Security, and Operations (DevSecOps). The expected result of reading this document is for all DoD entities, including those selected as official 873 and 874 Agile Pilot programs, to have a sense of direction on where to begin their DevSecOps journey. This document is not intended to be an engineering guideline document nor a “cookie-cutter” solution to successfully implement DevSecOps.Although the technological implementation of DevSecOps heavily relies on specific tools that provide crucial services in an automated pipeline, this document emphasizes the organizational cultural change necessary for stakeholders to use DevSecOps as a platform to provide the iterative, automated, and secure delivery of software.
