Facing new challenges…
  • Rapidly moving force on a dynamic battlefield
  • Demand for better information on assets
  • Need for more effective visibility and management
    of inventory
  • Improve business processes now
  • Improve confidence
  • Influence the direction and cost of technology
  • Drive the standards to work for us
  • Facilitate the implementation of Unique
    Identification (UID)

The Whats in it for Me - Big Picture Performanc
e Driven Outcomes
  • Upon the attainment of IUID/SIM Full Operating
    Capability, DoD weapon system sustainment
    managers will have dramatically improved insight
    into the cause-and-effect relationship between
    resources and readiness.
  • Capitalizing on this insight, weapon system
    support decisions will both be more informed and
    take less time.
  • Data-driven continuous process improvement
    (CPI) initiatives will be institutionalized,
    enabling the effective management of materiel
    reliability, materiel repair/replacement cycle
    time, and materiel sustainment cost
  • Overall material readiness will be higher, and
    overall weapon system life-cycle cost will be

The Genesis of IUID
  • GAO concerned with DOD management of its
    inventory of equipment.
  • Finding DODs inventory exceeded its war
    reserve or current operating requirements, but
    lacked key spare parts (particularly aviation
    spares) due to a lack of adequate accountability
    over material shipments or effective monitoring
    of defective spare parts.

DoD Vision for Item Unique Identification (IUID)
  • To implement a policy establishing a strategic
    imperative for uniquely identifying tangible
    items relying to the maximum extent practical on
    international standards and commercial item
    markings and while not imposing unique government
    data requirements.
  • Uniquely identified tangible items will
    facilitate item tracking in DoD business systems
    and provide reliable and accurate data for
    management, financial, accountability and asset
    management purposes.

Effective 1 January 04 Mandatory for Solicitations
A DoD Strategic Imperative
  • IUID is strategically critical to enable property
    management processes throughout the DoD
    enterprise to engage with precision and speed to
  • Always know what property the DoD owns
  • Always be able to account for it
  • Know where it is
  • Know who has custody of it
  • Know who is accountable for it
  • Know how it has been used maintained
  • Know what it cost
  • Know its value
  • And use this information to
  • Enable capability-based readiness
  • Support planning, forecasting, and budgeting
  • Identify gaps in capabilities
  • Improve reliability and warranty management
  • Improve processes
  • Reduce cycle time

IUID Policy Overview
  • Policy memorandum released on July 29th 2003
    (with subsequent updates) established IUID as a
    mandatory DoD requirement on all solicitations
    issued on or after January 1, 2004.
  • IUID is required for all property items delivered
    to the Government if
  • Acquisition cost is more than 5,000
  • Items with an acquisition cost below 5,000, when
    identified by the requiring activity as DoD
    serially managed, mission essential, or
    controlled inventory
  • Items with an acquisition cost below 5,000 as
    determined by the requiring activity
  • Regardless of value, any DoD serially managed
    subassembly, component or part embedded within an
    item and the parent item in which it is
  • Wide Area Workflow (WAWF) is the preferred method
    for capturing IUID data and became a mandatory
    payment requirement on January 1, 2005

USD (ATL) Memorandum 12 May 2005
  • Guidance for review of IUID implementation at
    milestone reviews
  • Establishes requirements for applying IUID to DoD
    property in the possession of contractors (PIPC)
  • Property should only be accountable in one
    property accountability system at a time
  • Acquisition value will be recorded and updated in
    the IUID Registry
  • Eliminate DD form 1662 DoD Property in the
    Custody of Contractors
  • IUID Registry will
  • Not be a property accountability system but
    provide audit trail of property in current and
    previous accountability systems.
  • Maintain master IUID data
  • Be updated with key transaction events but not
    maintain detailed transactional data
  • Develop interfaces between IUID Registry and
    component specific property systems
  • Add IUID to logistics policies and integration
    with serialized item tracking.

Key Direction from IUID Policy Updates
  • Apply IUID to legacy items in inventory and
    operational use
  • All program and item managers plan for and
    implement IUID
  • - ACAT 1D programs submitted plans by June 2005
  • - All others to MDAs by January 2006
  • Government Furnished Property (GFP) must meet
  • policy requirement effective 1 Jan 2006
  • Plans targeted FY2007 as the point by which
  • - All existing serialized assets will be entered
    in IUID registry
  • - UII marking capabilities established
    such that marking can commence when equipment is
    returned for maintenance

Key Direction from IUID Policy Updates (Continued)
  • DUSD (Logistics and Material Readiness) develop
    IUID implementation plan for organic depot

Unique Item Identifier (UII) is….
. . . the set of data for tangible assets that is
globally unique and unambiguous, ensures data
integrity and data quality throughout life, and
supports multi-faceted business applications and
UII is . . .
UID What makes it so Special?
  • UID…
  • Provides The Key to discovery and correlation
    of item, real
  • property and human resource information so …
  • DoD can consistently locate, control and value
  • anywhere and anytime
  • Enables globally accessible and secure
    enterprise data
  • Registries enable creation of UID mission
    critical services to
  • Translate legacy data for existing DoD systems
  • Enable access for operational support
  • Enable joint paperless management

In todays world, many items we buy have
identification on them that indicate the
manufacturer or distributor of the product and
the product type. ---Two identical cans of Coke
from the same bottling plant will show the same
data on the Universal Product Code (UPC) Some
items also have a serial number that
differentiates one item from another identical
item (e.g., the 24th engine off the assembly line
is different from the 1024th) ---Serial numbers
are unique, but not outside of their enterprise
the serial number assigned by XYZ Manufacturer
could be the same as one assigned by ABC Company.
By combining enterprise identification, item
class and serialization, a globally unique item
identifier is created that differentiates each
item from other items ---Each item has its own
globally unique identifier (UII)
UII What Is It?
Create and Generate the UII
The components that make up the UII are
identified in the table below. Each enterprise
has two options for creating the UII.

What is the IUID Lifecycle?
Require DoD contracts reflect the requirement
for part marks to include UII data elements for
all items which require unique identification
Dispose DoD/GSA records the termination of
the UII at time of item disposal
Use Functional stakeholders use UII as a
primary or alternate key in the AIS to access or
update item information based on its UII
Create/Generate Industry suppliers/manufacturers
throughout supply chain assign and apply UII
data elements and ensure the uniqueness of the
component data elements
Capture DoD establishes the birth record of
the UII by capturing the machine/human readable
component data elements to create the UII in the
Applying the UII
  • Vendor-Applied-at-Source Marking applied when
    item is manufactured
  • Opportunity-Based Item Application Can be done
    in the field or factory, wherever it is
    convenient to gain access to items either on an
    end item or available in a storage facility
    (phase maintenance, scheduled servicing, depot
    rebuild or overhaul processes, and work-order
    processes during modification)
  • Seek-and-Apply Used for particular items held
    within service, either at the end item or in
    storage. This strategy is dependent on
    establishing the location and availability of
    items before deployment of application equipment
    and teams. This approach is dependent upon good
    legacy data, and will demand greater overhead of
    coordinated effort to effect access to the
  • Gated The interception of items as they transit
    specific gates within the supply chain. After
    identification, the situation can be resolved by
    diverting the item back to the vendor for
    application, provision of an application
    capability at the specific supply gate, or
    diversion of the item to a centralized
    application facility.

Use of Commercial Identifiers
  • Commercial identifiers can be considered for use
    as a DoD IUID equivalent if it meets these
  • Must contain an enterprise identifier
  • Must uniquely identify an individual item within
    an enterprise identifier, product or part number
  • Must have an existing Data Identifier (DI) or
    Application Identifier (AI) listed in ANSI
    MH10.8.2, Data Identifier and Application
    Identifier Standard
  • Some examples of commercial unique identifiers
    meeting these criteria are
  • Global Individual Asset Identifier (GIAI) for
    serially-managed assets
  • Global Returnable Asset Identifier (GRAI) for
    returnable assets
  • ISO Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) for
  • Electronic Serial Number (ESN) for cellular
    telephones only.
  • Commercial identifiers must be approved by the
    UID Program Office in order to be accepted as
    IUID Equivalents

UII Marking by DoD
  • It may be desirable for the DOD-requiring
    activity to mark items when received rather than
    require the vendor to mark until the vendors
    internal capabilities are established. The
    requiring activity must ensure that DOD
    activities can guarantee that the UII information
    they use is unambiguous and globally unique
    through life.
  • There will be non-recurring costs to make the
    appropriate changes to drawings and marking
    instructions for legacy items, in accordance with
    MIL-STD-130 requirements, as well as costs for
    marking equipment and readers
  • 11 May 05 Directed programs to include
    requirements in budgeting documents (FY07-12) to
    ensure implementation visibility within the
    Planning, Programming, Budgeting, and Execution
    (PPBE) process

Contracting for IUID
  • DFARS 211.274-1 Unique item identification and
    valuation is a system of marking and valuing
    items delivered to DoD that will enhance
    logistics, contracting, and financial business
    transactions supporting the United States and
    coalition troops.
  • Through unique item identification policy, DoD
  • Achieve lower life cycle cost of item management
  • Improve operational readiness
  • Provide reliable accountability of property and

  • It is DoD policy that contractors shall be
    required to identify the Governments unit
    acquisition cost for all items delivered, even if
    none of the criteria for placing a unique item
    identification mark applies
  • The Governments unit acquisition cost is
  • For fixed price type CLINs, SLINs or ELINs, the
    unit price identified in the contract at time of
  • For cost type or undefinitized CLINs, SLINs or
    ELINs, the contractors estimated fully burdened
    unit cost at time of delivery to the Government

  • The Contractor shall submit the information in
    accordance with data submission procedures at

IUID Solicitation Prep/Contract Award
  • Solicitations for Service Contracts - IUID
    requirements do not apply unless the service
    requirement involves delivery of an item.
  • Equipment involved in performance of the service
    may have a UII assigned. (Beginning in 2006 GFP
    provided to contractors will need to be
    appropriately marked and have a UII assigned.)
  • RD hardware that never sees operational service
    nor requires logistical support might be treated
    as an expense for accounting purposes and would
    not require a value be assigned to its UII. The
    Program Manager makes that determination.
  • Operating lease items would not normally require
    UII marking or associated valuation, unless they
    are subsequently be purchased or supported by

IUID Solicitation Prep/Contract Award
  • Software cost will generally be associated with
    the hardware on which it operates and becomes
    part of the capitalized value of that asset.
  • The CLIN structure must be organized to identify
    all end-items, either at the CLIN level, or with
    Sub CLINs, for more complex situations where
    different end-items are to be delivered within a
  • It is not intended that IUID and valuation
    information become certified cost and pricing
    data, unless it would normally be used by the
    contractor to estimate the contract or required
  • If IUID is required on a new contract, major
    modification, or reprocurement of equipment (such
    as spare parts), the RFP must include
  • The DFARS clause 252.211-7003, Item
    Identification and Valuation
  • Reference to MIL-STD-130 (current version)
  • Include the new/revised DID

  • General Contract Quality Observations
  • Line item structures make it difficult to
    identify the deliverable/delivery
  • Lot line items and misleading kit
    descriptions complicate payments UID compliance
  • Unclear Options and ordering provisions
  • FAR Part 12 contracts w/o UID clause
  • UID requirements not getting into contracts
  • Clause placement varies -- Sections D, F, H, I
  • Clause included in full text and by reference
  • WAWF-RA deployment
  • Inaccurate or incomplete payment information
  • Not payable as written without extensive manual
  • Procurement/Contracting professionals who
    actually do the work are not attending the UID

Strategies Section B
  • Begin with Section B, Supplies and Services and
    Prices and Costs (CLIN structure)
  • Items must be separately identifiable
  • Items must have a separate delivery schedule or
    period of performance per item

Strategies Subline Items
  • Two types

Strategies Section C
  • Reference lengthy work statements in Section C
    attach at Section J
  • Cross-reference applicable paragraph of work

  • Clearly delineate which parts belong to which
    line item

Strategies Section E
  • Identify where inspection and acceptance will
  • Identify who has the authority to accept
  • Explain how we will inspect and accept
  • List Inspection/Acceptance DoDAAC for each
    delivery point (used in WAWF to route
  • Reference CDRLs if appropriate
  • Inspection and acceptance of these items will be
    made at the contractors plant
  • Inspection and acceptance of these items shall be
    made at the contractors plant by the cognizant
    DCMA office (Sxxxx) in accordance with the
    acceptance test procedure in Attachment A,
    Statement of Work, section 7.7

Strategies Consistency in Line Item Structure
  • Issue
  • Lot pricing a variety of items and quantities
    delivered over time
  • Problem
  • DFAS has no mechanism to pay for partial
    deliveries if no mechanism to report a partial
    acceptance only reconciled at close out
  • Valuation is problematic for IUID registry
  • Strategy
  • Limited use of lot items
  • Use subline items or exhibits to denote the
    actual deliverables and schedule
  • Note no NSNs with a unit of issue of lot

Strategies Consistency in Line Item Structure
  • CLIN Kit
  • Kit includes multiple, usually dissimilar items
  • Items are not separately priced
  • Varying quantities
  • Multiple shipments
  • Kit is not considered received until all
    shipments are received

Line Item Structure -- 10 Basic Questions
  • What do we expect the Contractor to deliver (list
    hardware, software, service, and data)
  • Do we have a line item, subline item or exhibit
    line item for each? Do we have ACRNs assigned to
    each in Section B? Do the totals by ACRN, CLIN
    and line of accounting match?
  • When is each item due to be delivered?
  • How much will the Contractor get paid?
  • Are there interim payments before delivery? If
    so, on what basis?
  • When will the Contractor get paid? What
    documentation will be required to effect payment?
  • How is the timing of contract payments related to
  • Is it clear in the line item structure and
    Sections F through I how payments relate to
  • What constitutes acceptable performance? How is
    it measured?
  • How do the inspection and acceptance criteria in
    Section E relate to the answers to Question 9?

Final Thoughts
  • Do
  • Include the UID clause
  • Specify to which line items the clause applies
  • Identify any embedded components to be valued and
  • Include language requiring use of WAWF
  • Ensure that each deliverable has a separate CLIN,
    SLIN, or ELIN and a defined delivery schedule
  • Ensure inspection and acceptance criteria address
  • Include the current version of MIL-STD- 130
  • Do Not
  • Lump dissimilar items together as a lot or a
  • Specify which UID construct is to be used
  • Require that the Contractor use government
    assigned identifiers for enterprise, part, or
    serial number
  • Impose unusual payment or acceptance procedures

More Final Thoughts
  • Make the contract easy to understand and manage
    for everyone
  • Use common procurement language
  • Be consistent in CLIN, SLIN and ELIN structures
  • Be consistent Period!

Why Electronic Invoicing?
  • Its the Law
  • The 2001 Defense Authorization act requires DoD
    to receive and process invoices electronically
  • Its in the Regulations
  • DFARS 252.232-7003 Electronic Submission of
    payment requests requires electronic invoicing
  • It makes good sense
  • Electronic invoices are paid sooner and more
    reliably then paper invoices

Why WAWF ? - The DFARS Clauses
  • 252.232-7003 Electronic Submission of Payment
  • (b) Except as provided in paragraph (c) of this
    clause, the Contractor shall submit payment
    requests using one of the following electronic
  • (1) Wide Area WorkFlow-Receipt and
    Acceptance (WAWF-RA).
  • 252.246-7000 Material Inspection and Receiving
  • (b) Contractor submission of the material
    inspection and receiving information required by
    Appendix F of the Defense FAR Supplement by using
    the Wide Area WorkFlow-Receipt and Acceptance
    (WAWF-RA) electronic form (see paragraph (b)(1)
    of the clause at 252.232-7003) fulfills the
    requirement for a material inspection and
    receiving report (DD Form 250).

Why WAWF ? - Benefits
  • Takes Less Time to Get Paid
  • 99.99995 on time payments
  • Interest paid
  • Without WAWF 289 per million paid
  • With WAWF lt2 cents per million paid
  • Lost Documents
  • Paper 35,000
  • WAWF - 1
  • 60 reduction in invoice cycle times
  • Currently 1M savings monthly
  • - Reduced DFAS costs billed to customers
  • - Interest avoidance
  • - Labor savings
