Abstract : To ensure that the Joint Medical Planning Tool (JMPT) was fully functional and met its current contract specifications, a verification and validation (V&V) effort was undertaken. Concomitantly, the data used with JMPT was evaluated to ensure that it was correct, complete, and consistent. A successful V&V effort would support accreditation by the Force Health Protection Integrating Council for use within the Department of Defense. A Functional Validation Working Group (FVWG) was formed. Training on JMPT and testing procedures was provided to all FVWG members during a week-long training session conducted in Huntsville, Alabama. Testing was administered by FVWG members and the findings, results, and recommendations were briefed to the Verification and Validation Working Group at weekly Defense Connect Online calls conducted July-October 2012. Critical FVWG findings were provided to the Naval Health Research Center and Teledyne Brown Engineering, Inc. for correction. Retesting was conducted by members of the FVWG in Nov 2012, which resulted in all critical issues being resolved. On 7 November 2012, the FVWG was briefed on the results of the retesting and agreed unanimously on recommending to the Strategic Analysis Working Group that JMPT be accredited for use as a joint medical planning tool.
