    What does PMD#/Code stand for?


    Answer

    The acronym PMD stands for Program Management Directive.  The PMD is used by the Air Force as one of the key program documents.  The template for the PMD (and other document templates) can be found at: https://acc.dau.mil/CommunityBrowser.aspx?id=356384&vm=Detailed.  You will notice that the PMD template refers to the PMD # (see block c.).  The Air Force assigns numbers to their PMDs for tracking purposes.  There is no clear reference to what Code means.  It may refer to the acquisition category (e.g. ACAT I, II, or III) or have some other function or meaning.  Check Headquarters Operating Instruction (HOI) 63-1, Headquarters Air Force Guidance For Preparing Program Management Directives, 20 November 2003 for additional guidance on PMDs.
