    Where can I find a list of OMB cleared data acquisition documents? I could not find it in the ASSIST database. I need to know if MIL-STD-40051-2B and MIL-HDBK 1222E are OMB cleared. thanks, Gene Fava 586-282-9509


    In Accordance With Acquisition Streamlining & Standardization Information System (ASSIST), both Mil-Std-40051-2B and Mil-HDBK-1222E are both current and active documents.
    The Acquisition Management System and Data Requirements Control List (AMSDL) was referenced in DoD 5010.12-L which has since been cancelled. The AMSDL was a hardcopy document listing the data requirements (i.e., source documents and DIDS) approved for use in Defense contracts. The last AMSDL was cancelled in 2001 and was rolled into the DoD Index of Specifications and Standards (DoDISS). 
    The Acquisition Streamlining & Standardization Information System (ASSIST) is now the official source of all documents listed in the DoDISS and all DIDS. The ASSIST database is maintained by the Defense Automated Printing Service (DAPS) in Philadelphia, PA. A feature called "Quick Search" lets users search the ASSIST database for defense and federal specifications and standards, military handbooks, Qualified Products Lists (QPLs), and other documents listed in the DoDISS and DIDS. "Assist Online" offers the features of Quick Search, plus analyses, reports, SD-1 contracts, project and other information. New users must complete the online registration. Log in Accounts for the ASSIST are free to DoD and to the public. The address to ASSIST is
    All active and canceled DIDs are indexed in the ASSIST database. Once logged on, to print a preformatted listing of all DIDs in Adobe PDF format, click on the [DIDs] link on the left side of the page to get to the [DIDs Menu] and then click on the link for the [DIDs Browser]. The DIDs Browser allows you to generate a list of active DIDs, canceled DIDs, or all DIDs (both active and canceled). This same screen allows you to filter results by standardization area, preparing activity, or preparing service, or to search for DIDs by keywords. The resultant list will be generated in HTML but may be saved as a preformatted report in Adobe PDF format by clicking on the [Report] button at the bottom of the screen. The list may also be exported in Microsoft Excel format by clicking on the [Spreadsheet] button at the bottom of the screen. (Note: If you have never before used ASSIST, you'll first need to register for a user account and password.)
