The Office of the Secretary of Defense Manufacturing Technology (OSD ManTech) Program Office in the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering (OUSD(R&E)) released its first-ever comprehensive Additive Manufacturing (AM) Strategy in January 2021. The AM Strategy establishes a common vision for the use of this game-changing technology, which is also known as three-dimensional (3D) printing. OSD ManTech, which is under the Strategic Technology Protection and Exploitation (STP&E) Office in OUSD(R&E), crafted the Strategy in partnership with the Military Services and other defense agencies.

DoD, GSA, and NASA are issuing a final rule amending the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to require contractors and subcontractors to report to the Government-Industry Data Exchange Program certain counterfeit or suspect counterfeit parts and certain major or critical nonconformances.

GIDEP FAR Rule was published Nov 22, 2019 in the Federal Register and is effective December 23, 2019. Required in: contracts for items containing electronics; contracts that include critical safety items; or contracts with higher level quality assurance. Contract clause requires reporting non-conforming or suspect counterfeit items to GIDEP and screening of the GIDEP database for alerts of reported items to prevent incorporation of those items on the production line.

The purpose of the DoD Parts Management Program is to establish parts management best practices across DoD in order to increase weapon system availability and reduce total ownership costs.  Selecting preferred parts during weapon system design drives positive outcomes throughout the life cycle of a system.  DoDM 4120.24 states, "Program offices must apply standardization processes to improve parts commonality," and, "should ensure that a parts management process is used to reduce the proliferation of parts and associated documentation." To accomplish these goals we:   

  • Review and revise DoD parts management related policy and guidance
  • Assess the effectiveness of DoD parts management activities across DoD
  • Research, identify, and promote parts management best practices across DoD and Industry
  • Prepare and Publish SD-19 – Parts Management Guide
  • Promote Parts Management education and engagement
  • Establish and pursue DoD – wide Parts Management Strategic Objectives
