Government Industry Data Exchange Program (GIDEP)

Last Updated : 04/12/2024


GIDEP has been designated as the centralized database for the timely distribution of Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS) data, distributed through DMSMS Notices. In addition, GIDEP distributes Product Change Notices and Product Information Notices that are used to inform product users of changes in technical characteristics or parameters in items/materials. The intent of these notices is to provide Government Activities with advanced notice of product discontinuance or product changes in order to allow these activities maximum lead time to make decisions among using alternate source, redesigning affected components of a system, or making life-of-type buys.

According to their website, GIDEP's mission is to "foster technical information sharing among government agencies and their industry partners" and serve as "...the premier source of shared Critical Information for Government and Defense related Industry contractors. GIDEP participation has directly realized over 2.1 billion dollars of unplanned cost expenditure savings. Reduced costs manifest in better, on-time, and competitively priced products and services. GIDEP membership and participation is a resource no world-class organization can afford to ignore."
