Posted: 20 Oct 2021. Related to the 13 Sep 2021 announcement below on the retirement of DAMIR, click on the Defense Acquisition Visibility Enviornment (DAVE) job support tool - a pdf of the specific steps you can take to register and access different types of programmatic-type of information.
Posted: 1 Oct 2021. For those DoD RMs who seek programmatic information on DoD acquisitions, today DoD is retiring the Defense Acquisition Management Information Repository (DAMIR) and relying on the Defense Acquisition Visibiltiy Environment (DAVE) to provide DAMIR capabilities. For those of you not familiar with DAMIR and DAVE, DAMIR has been the go-to tool for SAR, DAES, and APB reporting. DAVE includes many other capabilities to include the Acquisition Information Repository (AIR), a repository for acquisition documentation (e.g., Acquisition Strategies and ADMs), Middle Tier of Acquisition (MTA) data, and links to other acquisition-related systems. Also, OASD(A) reports that SIPR DAVE will go online toward the end of
October. NOTE: All data posted naturally depends on the date of the last submittals - double-check with your program office contacts to obtain the latest information. If you have any questions, email me at email@example.com.
Passing on some training information for all DoD RMs: the Geospatial Information and Services (GI&S) Officer Training Course (GOTC) is now available virtually.
The course is taught by the National Geospatial Agency (NGA) College and provides an overview of the community, process, data, and products associated with the responsibilities of GI&S officers throughout the National System for Geospatial Intelligence (NSG). This includes an awareness of GEOINT, GI&S fundamental principles, relevant GI&S communities, the breadth of NGA's foundation products/services, and the necessary hardware and software tools.
NOTE for RMs: the course also includes executing the process for requirements identification, research, submission, analysis, and dissemination. The course culminates in exercises to write a GI&S Annex for a Contingency Plan/Operation Plan(CONPLAN/OPLAN).
This course would be beneficial to anyone wanting to know more about GEOINT and how to access and use it. More information is located here: https://intellipedia.intelink.gov/wiki/GI%26S_Officer_Training_Course_(GOTC) – requires CAC login.
Registration is free & managed through blackboard. If interested in sharing or enrolling yourself, please contact the Course Manager, Mr. James Hotchkiss, at 314-676-0433, or James.R.Hotchkiss@nga.mil.
The dates for the next two virtual offerings are: 25-29 Oct 2021 and 24-28 Jan 2022.
