1.1 Scope.
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.

1.2 Purpose.
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.

1.3 Application.
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.
