DoD organizations use the Defense Business System (DBS) Pathway to acquire capabilities and systems supporting DoD business operations. Specific acquisition business processes and the Business Capability Acquisition Cycle (BCAC) mirrors the iterative RMF process.

Whereas DoD Instruction (DoDI) 5000.75, “Business Systems Requirements and Acquisition,” provides the applicable policy and the Adaptive Acquisition Framework website provides acquisition best practices, this page provides implementation guidance on integrating DBS and RMF processes together, thus enabling practitioners to use cybersecurity risk management techniques and tools to enhance acquisition efforts (references (c) and (d)). This page does not supersede or counteract the need to conduct Adaptive Acquisition Framework (AAF) Pathway-specific actions.
