​The Requirements Managers' Community of Practice has a library of tools to help you, the Requirements Manager, be more productive and efficient. For example, there is a Capabilities Development Document (CDD) template to help you quickly organize and prepare this important document. Other tools are available at both the DoD and Service level. You can find them by going to the Requirements Job Support Tools (JSTs) tile on the home page of this community of practice. 

If you need help with a JST, or need assistance beyond what the JSTs provide, you can reach out to us, the DAU Requirements Management faculty. You can find our contact information by clicking on the Training and Consulting tile on the front page (next to the JST tile).

For those DoD RMs who seek programmatic information on DoD acquisitions, last Friday DoD retired the Defense Acquisition Management Information Repository (DAMIR) and now relies 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

DAU can help with specific issues you may be facing. For example, DAU Requirements Management faculty had a one-on-one consulting engagement with requirements managers trying to address operational capability gaps. The outcome: the Requirements Managers now have a clearer path forward to capture and validate operational capability gaps within and across Services, saving the Requirements Managers valuable time and effort. 

If DAU's expertise and experience can help you, the Requirements Manager, address an issue or problem more efficiently, or if you are just looking for sage advice, contact the DAU Requirements Department for consulting support. You can contact us by going to the Requirements Management Community of Practice (RMCOP) home page and clicking on the Training and Consulting tile. Or, you can get in touch with the RMCoP owner and DAU faculty member, Jack Mohney, via email (

​​The DAU Requirements Faculty provides consulting support to help Requirements Managers address specific challenges. For example, in one consulting event, DAU Requirements Faculty facilitated a Service-level discussion with Requirements Managers on Best Practices. The results included building networking between Requirements Managers and with the DAU faculty for capacity to collaborate on future requirements challenges. If you want to take advantage of DAU faculty expertise to help you address an issue you have, or to improve your effectiveness as a Requirements Manager, go to the Training & Consulting tile on the Requirements Management Community of Practice (RMCoP) home page.
