Candidates will work with DCGS stakeholders to identify TandE opportunities, conceptualize implementations, and propose scenarios that maximize data collection objectives. Candidates will research data available on operational networks that support DCGS Enterprise assessment activities. Candidates will participate in test related meetings to ensure test requirements are identified, considered, and included early in the systems development and test planning processes. Candidates will manage and maintain the Master Test Activity Schedule and post it on the DCGS Online Intelink site. Candidates will develop, update, and review TandE documentation to ensure data collection and analysis are uniformly applied to all DCGS Enterprise components, services, and data assets. Candidates may be required to prepare and present TandE approach, concept, or planning briefings.
ENTERPRISE CHALLENGE, TRIDENT WARRIOR, Limited Objective Events (LOE) conducted by the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency (NGA), and PoR test events and demonstrations). The DCGS TandE Functional Team will also typically plan and conduct two self directed "agile" TandE events to obtain enterprise data from operational networks [e.g.,the Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNet)].
2) Candidates will specifically address the Service Dial Tone (SDT) assessment, including reviewing and familiarization with:
Capability Description Packages (CDP)
Requirements Traceability Matrices (RTM)
Technical Design Descriptions (TDD)
Compliance Test Kits (CTK)
Service Specification Packages (SSP)
3) Candidates will specifically address the evaluation of DCGS Enterprise services and data assets using the Visible, Accessible, Understandable, Secure and Interoperable (VAUSI) definitions and associated criteria reflected in the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Instruction 6212.01E. The VAUSI metrics are required by the Enterprise Focus Team (EFT) and although currently based on CJCSI 6212.01E, the exact metrics and criteria may change over time, based on updated Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff instructions and Enterprise Focus Team direction.
D. Controlled Data Set
Candidates will establish, grow, and refine a Controlled Data Set (CDS) repository with Multi INT data for use by the Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) and TandE communities. This will include coordination for and leveraging of JITC's established Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) Data Repository. This effort also includes cataloging of the data using logical parameters and maintaining a set of repeatable query transactions (test cases) reflecting various combinations of the parameters and expected outcomes when the transactions are processed using the Controlled Data Sets.
E. TandE Plans
1) All TandE activities require a plan. Candidates will develop plans that address the goals and objectives of each test event. Where and when appropriate, candidates will incorporate Design of Experiments (DOE). Candidates may be required to prepare and present TandE plan briefings.
2) Candidates will produce the yearly DCGS Enterprise Assessment Concept (EAC) that provides a high level approach to evaluating the Enterprise based on community approved objectives and associated metrics, the results of which are reflected in the annual DCGS Enterprise Assessment Report.
F. TandE Events (e.g., Tests, Assessments, Exercises, Experiments, and Demonstrations)
Candidates will actively participate in TandE events to collect data in support of DCGS Enterprise goals and objectives.
1) Candidates will conduct and/or participate in at least three enterprise level test events per year. Likely DCGS Enterprise TandE venues include but are not limited to:
PoR Test Events and Demonstrations
2) Candidates will conduct at least two "agile" TandE events, incorporating the Scrum methodology, to obtain DCGS Enterprise data from operational networks. These events are generally small in scope and scheduled between larger Enterprise Assessment events, as time and resources permit. Objectives of the agile events are established by the government action officer and may be based on the need to confirm ambiguous results from previous assessments or investigate the status of enterprise data in response to community concerns.
G. TandE Results
1) All TandE activities require documentation to record and disseminate the results. Candidates will record results in the agreed upon test report format. Candidates may be required to prepare and present TandE result briefings.
2) Candidates will provide the DCGS Enterprise Assessment Report on an annual basis that summarizes the findings and trends identified in all relevant Enterprise assessment events completed during the year.
