1.1.1.  Establish practices and procedures consistent with the requirements of references (b) through (t).

1.1.2.  Provide updated guidelines to the DoD Components for managing and coordinating research, engineering, procurement, installation maintenance, and material support for PSE.

1.1.4.  Broaden the scope of the PSE program.

1.2.  Current guidance on responsibilities and organizations associated with the PSE program in various DoD memoranda is consolidated in this Directive.

1.3.  All guidance associated with the acquisition of PSE and system security engineering for weapon systems acquisition shall be reviewed for compliance with this Directive.

2.  APPLICABILITY AND SCOPE

This Directive applies to:

2.1.  The Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), the Military Departments, the Joint Staff, the Unified and Specified Commands, the Defense Agencies, and the DoD Field Activities (hereafter referred to collectively as the "DoD Components").  The term "Military Services," as used herein, refers to the Army, the Navy, the Air Force, and the Marine Corps.

2.2.  All programs associated with the acquisition of PSE and systems designed, developed, and acquired to support weapon system programs, antiterrorist installation programs, tactical force protection packages, and the programs described by DoD 5100.76-M; DoD Instructions 5220.30 and 5210.71; and DoD Directives 5210.63, 5210.64, 5210.65, and 5210.73 (references (i) through (o)), except for equipment or techniques used or designated as follows:

2.2.1.  Primarily for safety purposes.

2.2.2.  Expressly to prevent the unauthorized use of nuclear weapons; i.e., denial, disable, and permissive action link devices.

2.2.3.  For technical surveillance and countermeasures.

2.2.4.  To provide communications security (COMSEC) protection, including features integral to COMSEC equipment.

2.2.5.  For criminal or counterintelligence investigation.

2.2.6.  For computer security protection integral to automated information systems.

3.  DEFINITIONS

3.1.  Physical Security.  That part of security concerned with physical measures designed to safeguard personnel; to prevent or delay unauthorized access to equipment, installations, material and documents; and to safeguard them against espionage, sabotage, damage, and theft.

3.2.  Physical Security Equipment (PSE).  A generic term encompassing any item, device, or system that is used primarily for the protection of Government property, including nuclear, chemical, and other munitions, personnel, installations, and in the safeguarding of national security information and material, including the destruction of such information and material both by routine means and by emergency destruct methods.

4.  POLICY

4.1.  The objective of the DoD PSE program is to select or design, evaluate, and acquire the most efficient and productive security equipment at the most reasonable cost to ensure the effective protection of DoD resources, including personnel, classified information, material, and readiness assets.

4.2.  The following specific measures are necessary to achieve the objective of the PSE program:

4.2.1.  Provide adequate programming, planning, and funding support for both near-term and long-lead requirements.

4.2.2.  Eliminate duplication of research and engineering effort while ensuring interoperability between essential elements of security systems fielded by the DoD Components.

4.2.3.  Consider the legitimate differing operational needs of the DoD Components for physical security systems while coordinating research, engineering, and production requirements for items common to the DoD Components.

4.2.4.  Use commercial equipment where feasible.  Requirements for security equipment must be thoroughly identifiable.  In-house research and development projects should be started only when there is no commercially available equipment, which shall approximate the particular requirement or when its performance is not operationally suitable.  Before a Military Service or an Agency may start a research, development, test, and evaluation (RDT&E) project within the Department of Defense, that Military Service and/or Agency must certify to the OSD that a check of non-developmental items (NDI) has been conducted, state how it was conducted, and confirm that only an internal DoD development effort ensures an economic and timely approach to satisfy a particular need.  That certification shall be processed through the Joint Requirements Working Group (JRWG) and become a part of that group's minutes.

4.2.5.  Increase coordination and information sharing among DoD and other Executive branch Departments and Agencies, and consolidating testing when feasible.

4.2.6.  Provide a Physical Security Equipment Listing (PSEL) to identify all PSE that the sponsors believe may have DoD application.  Procurement of security equipment for the purpose of RDT&E is not limited by this Directive.  The use of the PSEL and other procurement procedures are subject to guidelines set out in Section 9.2 of the FAR (reference (f)).

4.2.7.  Use single-Service procurement by the DoD Component responsible for development of specific PSE where appropriate, more efficient, and cost effective.

4.2.8.  Streamline PSE acquisition organizations in accordance with DoD Directive 5000.1 (reference (b)).
