Defence Capability Policy Framework replaces the Capability Life Cycle Manual

The Vice Chief of the Defence Force, Vice Admiral David Johnston, has announced the release of a suite of guidance in three Tiers to replace the Capability Life Cycle Manual version 2.1
The three tiered structure is designed as:
Tier 1 – Defence Capability Administrative Policy provides the overarching principles and top-level accountabilities.
Tier 2 – Defence Capability Manual outlines the One Defence Capability Model, the phases of the One Defence Capability Model and a high level description of capability processes and how they connect.
Tier 3 – A suite of guidance documents provide more detailed guidance on particular processes and issues which will be progressively released through 2021.
The Defence Capability Administrative Policy, Defence Capability Manual and three Tier 3 documents covering (Product Life Cycle, Force Design and Smart Buyer) are accessible to members under Defence Reference Documents in the DICA Library.
The online Capability Management Induction Day (see Events) will provide an overview of the Defence Capability Policy Framework from senior leaders.
