This Business Capability Acquisition Cycle (BCAC) model is directly from DOD Instruction 5000.75 Business System Requirements and Acquisition applicable to all defense business systemsInformation systems that are operated by, for, or on behalf of the DoD, including: financial, contracting, logistics, planning and budgeting, installations management, human resources management, and training and readiness.. This version on AiDA is designed to be more interactive than the PDF policy and serve as a structure for DoD to add supporting guidance and references for each phase and review. While the model appears linear, it is intended to be flexible and iterative.
