From the document: "The Department of Defense (DoD) is working with U.S. policymakers to consider electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) access broadly and not restrict the development of possible solutions to address the Department's challenges or any one group of spectrum users. Various National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) spectrum incentives and efficiency efforts are under way, under its senior spectrum Policy and Plans Steering Group (PPSG). Legislative efforts have also sought to impose statutory requirements in this area. Incentive efforts are typically based on incorrect assumptions that agencies lack incentives for efficient use of the EMS. This has prompted a need to establish Department policy guidance, which will be based on overarching spectrum efficiency principles that set an accurate baseline of drivers for national security by emphasizing the critical role of mission effectiveness (See Attachment). Going forward, these principles will serve as the fundamental basis for DoD engagement with U.S. policymakers and for internal Department poli cy considerations on the subject of spectrum incentives and efficiency."
