eQuip and the IUID Registry
The Department of Defense IUID Requirements
The U.S. Department of Defense maintains item Unique Identification, or IUID, standards that require suppliers and contractors to uniquely identify most tangible property, including components and kit parts, throughout an item’s full lifecycle of service.
The mandate will have requirements on government suppliers and service providers. These government contractors need to create UID (or Unique IDentification) for their finished products and submit the IUID data to DOD’s IUID Registry. They will also need to utilize the DoD’s Wide Area Work Flow (WAWF) component of the government’s Invoicing, Receipt, Acceptance, and Property Transfer (iRAPT) system.
To achieve IUID compliance, DoD suppliers need to:
- Create a UID for all components and embed them in the finished products
- Create a UID for the finished product and establish the parent-child tree of UIDs
- Submit the UID date to the Wide Area Workflow via DD250 or the DoD IUID Registry
Similarly, service providers for the DoD need to:
- Update the IUID registry when Government Property is received, delivered, shipped, consumed, disposed, and/or transferred
- Apply UID retroactively to legacy GFP
These requirements can be challenging for contractors to meet. Not only do government contractors need to track all of their newly acquired GFP, they often must track legacy assets as well.
This all must be done accurately, or the contractor may receive Corrective Action Requests (CARs).
How can a contractor meet these requirements in a cost-effective way?
