5. DETAILED REQUIREMENTS
5.1 Template descriptions. The VV&A effort shall be documented to demonstrate fitness for the intended use and to support model and simulation reuse. The core set of VV&A documents consists of the Accreditation Plan, the V&V Plan, the V&V Report, and the Accreditation Report.
5.1.1 The Accreditation Plan (Appendix A) focuses on; defining the criteria to be used during the accreditation assessment; defining the methodology to conduct the accreditation assessment; defining the resources needed to perform the accreditation assessment; and identifying issues associated with performing the accreditation assessment.
5.1.2 The V&V Plan (Appendix B) focuses on defining the methodology for scoping the V&V effort to the application and the acceptability criteria; defining the V&V tasks to that will produce information to
support the accreditation assessment; defining the resources needed to perform the V&V; and identifying issues associated with performing the V&V.
5.1.3 The V&V Report (Appendix C) focuses on documenting the results of the V&V tasks; documenting M&S assumptions, capabilities, limitations, risks, and impacts; identifying unresolved issues associated with V&V implementation; and documenting lessons learned during V&V.

This standard establishes templates for the four core products of the Modeling and Simulation (M&S) Verification, Validation, and Accreditation (VV&A) processes: Accreditation Plan; V&V Plan; V&V Report, and Accreditation Report. These documents are normally prepared and used at different times and by different groups; much of the information included in each is common and should be shared. The templates provide a common framework and interfacing capability between the four documents and support consistency and efficiency. Additionally, the plans and reports produced by following the templates serve as a communications device between the participants in the VV&A processes. Specific templates for each document are found in the appendices.
The purpose of this standard is to provide a common framework for sharing information throughout the VV&A processes. The common method of documentation benefits participants in the VV&A processes by eliminating unnecessary redundancy and facilitating reuse of information when accrediting an M&S for an intended use.
This standard is applicable to the VV&A of all M&S developed, used, or managed by the Department of Defense or any of its Components.
