JCIDS Manual: Manual for the Operation of the Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System

“Purpose: This manual provides procedural guidance for the Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System (JCIDS) which is established as the primary means for the JROC to fulfill its statutory responsibilities to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (CJCS) as outlined in Reference [2]. These responsibilities include assessing joint military capabilities, and identifying, approving, and prioritizing gaps in these capabilities, to meet applicable requirements in the National Defense Strategy (NDS). It provides detailed guidelines and procedures for JCIDS to facilitate robust capability requirements portfolio management and the timely and cost-effective development of capability solutions for the warfighter. Exceptions to the rules are accepted on a case by case basis and it is understood that each capability requirement is unique and may require waivers to meet its needs.”
