Abstract The Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Developmental Test and Evaluation DASD(DT&E) tasked IDA to collect, organize, and assess best practices and lessons learned (BPLL) for performing and supporting DT&E by government and industry; provide tools for DASD(DT&E) staff specialists, program offices, and test organizations to provide faster response in DT&E planning and execution; and provide an organized, easily accessible, and interactive web-based DoD-level repository of T&E BPLL available for the acquisition and T&E communities. The task involved several distinct subtasks. First, applicable lessons learned and best practices were collected. These, along with discussions with experienced personnel, were used to derive the initial set of DT&E best practices. Next, the team developed the necessary software and protocols to establish the DT&E Forum website on a webserver operated by the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics OUSD(AT&L). Finally, the team assessed the potential for the DT&E Forum to be the model for DT&E s Internal Website. This paper describes the approach and activities used to carry out the tasking, and the results obtained.
