Last Updated : 04/14/2017

The J6D Inquiry System (Defense Automatic Addressing System Center Inquiry, or DAASINQ) provides information on DoD Activity Address Codes (DODAAC), Military Assistance Program Address Codes (MAPAC), National Item Identification Number (NIIN), and Routing Identifier Codes (RIC).

In addition to the direct link to the J6D Inquiry System (Defense Automatic Addressing System Center Inquiry, or DAASINQ), see also DLM 4000.25, Volume 6, Chapter 2 "The DoDAAD Policy and Procedures"

Additional Information

According to DLM 4000.25, Volume 6, Chapter 2, “the Department of Defense Activity Address Directory (DoDAAD) “is an interactive, relational database serving as a single authoritative source of identification, routing, and address information for authorized users, including Military Components and Agencies, participating Federal Agencies, authorized contractors, and authorized special program activities such as state and local governments.  DoDAAD supports business application systems data and interoperability requirements, including (but not limited to) supply chain, materiel management, distribution, transportation, maintenance, finance, contracting, procurement, and acquisition systems.  DoDAAD information is used throughout the federal supply system for identification, requisitioning, shipping, billing, and other uses.  The DoDAAD is comprised of both Department of Defense Activity Address Code (DoDAAC) and Routing Identifier Code (RIC) identifiers: 

  • DoDAAC. The DoDAAC is a six-character, alpha-numeric code that uniquely identifies a unit, activity, or organization within the DoDAAD.  A unit, activity, or organization may have more than one DoDAAC for different authority codes or purposes.  Each activity that requisitions, contracts for, receives, has custody of, issues, or ships DoD assets, or funds/pays bills for materials and/or services is identified by a six-position alphanumeric DoDAAC.
  • RIC. The RIC is a 3-character, alpha-numeric code that uniquely identifies a unit, activity, or organization that requires system ability to route transactions or receive transactions routed to it (e.g., source of supply) within logistics and financial business systems using DLMS and legacy 80 record position format transactions. The RIC was originally conceived as an abbreviated form of a seven-character Communication Routing Identifier (COMMRI) but its use has since expanded. The first position designates the particular service/agency ownership, the second and third characters are determined by the Central Service Point (CSP).
