Abstract:

One role performed by technology Groups within DSTO is the provision of whole of platform advice to Defence capability acquisition projects during the needs and requirements phases of the capability development lifecycle. At present the process, or system, that links the request for advice from a capability acquisition project stakeholder to the analysis and advice provided by DSTO, is not clearly understood or defined. This lack of clarity can influence the form and content of the advice provided by permitting misinterpretation of the intended purpose of the advice by the DSTO Groups andor misunderstanding on the part of the capability stakeholders as to the type of analysis required and the expected bounds of validity of the advice. The role that DSTO provides to the greater Defence organisation is analogous to many customer service provider relationships in industry, thus this lack of clarity between customer requirements and technical advice provided is broadly applicable.
