    Is there a Contract Data Requirements List (CDRL) example and, more importantly, a Data Item Description (DID) useful for ordering the full and complete Integrated Digital Environment (IDE) contents that are useful and accessible to the Government?


    1. The FAR reference quoted below in pertinent part are applicable to this response.

    FAR 52.211-2 -- Availability of Specifications, Standards, and Data Item Descriptions Listed in the Acquisition Streamlining and Standardization Information System (ASSIST).

    (a) Most unclassified Defense specifications and standards may be downloaded from the following ASSIST websites:
      (2) Quick Search ( )

    2. In response to this inquiry, we reviewed the ASSIST data base and could not locate any existing or even an obsolete Data Item Description (DID) that either directly or indirectly describes ordering a full and complete Integrated Digital Environment (IDE) content for delivery to the Government. Therefore, we recommend that the organization’s Program Management, Systems Engineering and/or Lifecycle Logistics functions be requested to jointly develop a unique DID which would be added to the solicitation and contract CDRL that would satisfy the needs of the contemplated acquisition as described in this inquiry.
