Can we relocate the DKSP homepage from the subset of DAU to stand alone homepage? If not, we should relocate to the subset of GIDEP.
We should be the subset of GIDEP for 2 reasons:
1. The DMSMS topic is more closely related to the GIDEP than DAU.
2. With a link to GIDEP, our exposure, participation, and membeship will increase.
Both DMSMS and GIEDP are Defense Standardization Program Office (DSPO) (http://www.dsp.dla.mil/) programs. While these programs are complementary and work very closely together, both have separate mandates and purposes. The DMSMS program's focus on all phases of the DoD acquisition process make the Defense Acquisition University a good fit for hoisting the DMSMS Knowledge Sharing Portal (DKSP).
The broad mandate of the DMSMS program is to promote and implement the policies and procedures to mitigate the impact of DMSMS and is closely aligned with DoD acquisition process from program inception, through development and production, including contracting, and throughout the life cycle of a weapon system.
GIDEP was established to promote and facilitate focuses on the sharing of information, including DMSMS information, between government agencies and industry partners to increase systems safety, reliability, and readiness and to reduce systems development, production, and ownership costs. GIDEP has been designated as the provider of the government's central database for receiving and disseminating information about nonconforming products and materials.
The DKSP is hosted on SharePoint and GIDEP is not. SharePoint serves our need to be more interactive with users and serve as a DMSMS information sharing platform while GIDEP is the DoD source for DMSMS alerts.
The DMSMS Guidebook, SD-22, has detailed information on how to establish a robust DMSMS program and is included in the Defense Acquisition University's tools database. SD-22 can be found at: https://www.dau.mil/tools/t/SD-22-Diminishing-Manufacturing-Sources-and-Material-Shortages-(DMSMS)-Guidebook
