TITLE:  DoD Directive 4630.5, "Interoperability and Supportability of Information Technology (IT) and National Security Systems (NSS)," 05/05/2004

SUMMARY:  This Directive:  1. Reissues DoD Directive 4630.5, dated January 11, 2002, to update policy and responsibilities for interoperability and supportability of Information Technology (IT), including National Security Systems (NSS), and implements DoD Chief Information Officer's (DoD CIO's) responsibilities contained in Subtitle III of title 40, United States Code, as amended and Sections 2223 and 2224 of title 10, United States Code, as amended.   2. Defines a capability-focused, effects-based approach to advance IT and NSS interoperability and supportability across the Department of Defense.  3. Establishes the Net-Ready Key Performance Parameter (NR-KPP) to assess net-ready attributes required for both the technical exchange of information and the end-to-end operational effectiveness of that exchange.  The NR-KPP replaces the Interoperability KPP and incorporates net-centric concepts for achieving IT and NSS interoperability and supportability.
