ENTERPRISE COMPLIANCE REQUIREMENTS [back to top]

Per DoD CIO published DoD Instruction 8320.02, “Sharing Data, Information, and Information Technology (IT) Services in the Department of Defense”, Section 3.b states the following:

      Data, information, and Information Technology (IT) services are considered enablers of information sharing to the DoD. Data, information, and IT services will be made visible, accessible, understandable, trusted, and interoperable throughout their lifecycles for all authorized users. Authorized users include DoD consumers and mission partners, subject to law, policy, data rights, and security classifications.

BACKGROUND AND AUTHORITY [back to top]

Per DODI 8330.01, JITC is to:

  1. Serve as the Interoperability Certification Authority for all DoD IT with joint, multinational, or interagency interoperability requirements.
  2. Coordinate with the DoD Components to resolve joint, multinational, or interagency IT interoperability issues.
  3. In coordination with program managers (PMs) of IT with joint, multinational, or interagency interoperability requirements, review Test and Evaluation Master Plans (TEMPs), and associated developmental and operational test plans for interoperability.
  4. Assess compliance with bilateral and multilateral standardization agreements (e.g., U.S.-ratified North Atlantic Treaty Organization Standardization Agreements).
  5. Define the methodology to test and certify enterprise services for interoperability within the DoD.

ENTERPRISE COMPLIANCE TESTING [back to top]

MTI Enterprise Compliance testing is the evaluation of data assets to support data sharing processes (e.g. dissemination, ingestion, posting, discovery, retrieval, exploitation, etc) with program and Enterprise architecture to make data accessible, visible, understandable, trustworthy, interoperable, and responsive to the user.

Enterprise Assessment Report
5. Enterprise
    Tests
Evaluate program against the design specification to determine continued state of compliance.
Post and retrieve samples, when applicable, to/from program specific and community repositories to evaluate interoperability, accessibility, and visibility.
Analyze samples, when applicable, using program specific and common user applications to evaluate understandability and responsiveness via user feedback.
Evaluate program with (un)anticipated users to determine trustworthiness and responsiveness via user feedback. Verify registration on the appropriate community registries.
Enterprise Test Report

The test is an official, for-the-record event resulting in a test report outlining the scope, methodology, limitations, analyses, and configurations. The Enterprise Test Report (title subject to change) will be enveloped in the Interoperability Certification Test Report.
