Distribution Statements for Technical Information
Bill Kobren
The Department issued new technical data policy this week of interest to the life cycle logistics, product support and sustainment community entitled DoD Instruction 5230.24 Distribution Statements on DoD Technical Information. “This issuance:
  • Establishes policies, assigns responsibilities, and provides procedures for assigning distribution statements on technical information, including research, development, test and evaluation (RDT&E); engineering; acquisition; and sustainment information, to denote the extent to which the technical information is available for secondary release and distribution without additional approvals or authorizations.
  • Establishes a standard framework and markings for managing, sharing, safeguarding, and distributing technical information in accordance with national and operational security, privacy, records management, intellectual property, Federal procurement, and export-control policies, regulations, and laws.
  • Aligns marking procedures for controlled technical information (CTI) in accordance with procedures described in DoD Instruction (DoDI) 5200.48 and Part 2002 of Title 32, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).
  • Helps originators of technical information determine to what extent it must be controlled in accordance with DoDD 5230.25.”
