Marketing Guidance for the
Use of Gold Star Recognition in Corporate Publicity


Gold Star Recognition is an informal process that takes place during the technical integration stage in preparation for the actual Plugfest. 

The DI2E EFT generates a placard for each company to display during the Plugfest indicating alignment with specific DI2E goals its products or services have achieved.

Gold Star Recognition is an informal assessment and as such does not indicate or imply in any way certification or compliance with the DI2E standards or specifications, nor does it imply endorsement of your product(s) by the DI2E EFT, DI2E Framework team, OUSD(I), or the Defense Department.
