New DoD Item Unique Identification (IUID) Instruction

Bill Kobren

For those who may not have seen it yet, the Department of Defense yesterday reissued a new DoD Instruction 8320.03 Unique Identification (UID) Standards for Supporting the DoD Information Enterprise to reissue DoD Directive 8320.03 “… to establish policy and assign responsibilities for creation, maintenance, and dissemination of UID standards to account for, control, and manage DoD assets and resources”.

This new DoD instruction also “supports the National Military Strategy…for sharing data, information, and information technology (IT) services by enabling sharing, analyzing, and disseminating authoritative, unambiguous on-demand data associated with unique identifiers with mission partners in a global environment, and “…establishes policy and assigns responsibilities for… DoD’s integrated enterprise-wide UID strategy…to enable DoD Information Enterprise (IE) operations, development, management, and use of unique identifiers and their associated data sources to preclude redundancy”. It also “assigns responsibilities for the maintenance and implementation oversight of the DoD UID standards.”
