Reference (a) is hereby cancelled. This version of the memo adds language regarding the requirements for data centers.

Enterprise Information Environment Mission Area (EIEMA), Warfighter Mission Area (WMA), and Defense Intelligence Mission Area (DIMA) systems will conduct certifications and annual reviews that will be reviewed and approved by the Department of the Navy (DON) Chief Information Officer (CIO), the DON Deputy CIO (DDCIO) (Navy), or the DDCIO (Marine Corps), as appropriate.

To ensure all EIEMA, WMA, and DIMA system certifications and annual reviews are completed on time by the appropriate approval authorities, the following requirements and timelines apply:

  • All EIEMA systems with development/modernization funding totaling $1M or more must obtain DON CIO approval to obligate funds, using the certification process outlined in reference (b).
  • All EIEMA systems with development/modernization funding less than $1M must obtain the appropriate DDCIO's approval to obligate funds, using the certification process outlined in reference (b). DON/AA is the approving authority for the Secretariat.
  • Annual reviews of all EIEMA systems that have no development/modernization funding or were previously certified must be completed, following the process prescribed in reference (b), not later than 15 June.
  • Data centers are not required to be registered in DITPR-DON as EIEMA systems. Data center funding requests should be submitted for approval via the FY2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) waiver process defined in reference (c).
  • All WMA and DIMA systems must be reviewed annually by 30 August. WMA and DIMA system reviews are to be completed by the appropriate DDCIOs, following the EIEMA process found in reference (b).
  • Per reference (c), all EIEMA, WMA, and DIMA systems will demonstrate compliance with the DON Enterprise Architecture (EA) as part of the annual review and certification process. The DON EA requirement includes all DON training systems, devices, and simulators that are connected to or have the capability to connect to the Global Information Grid (GIG). Training systems, devices, and simulators considered to be standalone systems having no capability to connect to the GIG are not required to complete DON EA assessment, but any software they use must be identified using the MAP tab in DITPR-DON.
This guidance will remain in effect indefinitely. My points of contact for this matter are: DON CIO: Anna Tarrant, 703-697-0052, or anna.tarrant@nayy.mil; Navy (OPNAV N2/N6): Michael Cricchio, 571-256-8510, or michael.cricchiol@navy.mil; Marine Corps (HQMC C4): Robin Thomas, 571-256-9061, or robin.thomas@usmc.mil.
