Good afternoon, our team is exploring the creation of a Requirements Team. To aid in that process we would like to know what types of Knowledge, Skills and Abilities (KSAs) members have established in planning for personnel or in establishing their own requirements processes.
The USSOCOM acquistion staff is redoing their governing directive and has added a new requirements document type called a "Capabilty Needs Statement". This CNS is part of the agile acquisition framework - the software acquistion pathway. i am told that these documents have to be loaded into KMDS when approved. I tried to find a format - but was unsuccessful. Does anyone have anything more on this CNS? Thanks . Liesel Muth, USSOCOM/J6

Is there a DCR document review checklist posted anywhere (similar to the ICD and CDD checklist)?
Please take a few minutes to introduce yourself to the community: what are your interests, your expertise that you'd be willing to share with the community, your questions that need answered?
Looking for a Capability Requirements Template for DBS Acquisition / Business Capability Acquisition Cycle (BCAC).There are examples at the BCAC CoP https://www.milsuite.mil/book/groups/bcaccommunity but no official template is pubished similar to ICD/CDD templates on JCIDS Manual. Would like to know what the DAU endorsed template looks like.Reference: https://aaf.dau.edu/aaf/dbs/
Is anyone aware whether DOD has an appoved RM tool available to manage requirememts? I would have thought perhaps JS J8 might have had something... but beems some use spreadsheets, some use a unique proprietary solution, and some all over the place, etc. I am looking for an RM tool approved for various DOD nets and thats tailorable. As it stands now I am thinking I will simply use SharePoint, build forms, workflows, etc. Any advice or guidance is appreciated.
Hello RMs! A quick heads up. I've been updating the RMCoP content as well as improving the look & feel of the site. In essence, I've been simplifying what the techies term "user interface/user experience" or UI/UX. Regardless of the jargon, I'm striving to make it easier for the DoD RM to access the information and tools they need to do their job. Well, to do this properly, I could use your help - what we call "Voice of the Customer" around these parts. I ask that you cruise around the site and email me directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) or even call me at 703-805-4369 with any suggestions, new content, & such - anything to help others in our RM community. Thanks...

I am building ICD and CDD excerpts for a ficticious acquisition program and was hoping someone could offer a template or unclassified sample ICD/CDD. Any help greatly appreciated.

What are your thoughts on the importance of having approved Joint Concepts covering the mission area from which capability baselines analysis, identification of gaps and assessments are done? Thought, if we have made some investments, and even demonstrated a particular capability value during actual operations, and want inform material and non-material solutions - but this capability area is not mature and is considered to be a new fundemental approach to how our joint force would fight... it seems that sooner, rather than later, a new joint concept should be nominated so that any subsequent requirement analysis - looking at a baseline and gaps to that baseline, has formal tasks, conditions and standards to measure against. Thoughts?
Are you interested in a job doing capability requirements at Tyndall AFB for the Air Force Civil Engineer Enterprise?

Anyone happen to have a more recent version of SECNAVINST 5000.2? Latest and greatest version would be helpful in ensuring the requirements managers for my small programs don't toss requirements at ACAT IVs and AAPs that are not applicable. Thanks.

Hello All. To get the best and latest information to the RM community, I've just updated the Points of Contact List on the RMCoP Home page.

Also note there are a couple of missing phone numbers and as they become available to me, I'll update this list again. Lastly, if you see any incorrect numbers, please call me at 703-805-4369 or email me at email@example.com.
