Unique Identification (UID) Standards for a Net-Centric Department of Defense
|Publication Date:||23 March 2007|
Implements Reference (a) to establish policy and prescribe the criteria and responsibilities for creation, maintenance, and dissemination of UID data standards for discrete entities. UID standards will enable on-demand information in a net-centric environment, which is an essential element in the accountability, control, and management of DoD assets and resources.
Establishes policy and assigns responsibilities, per Reference (b), for the establishment of the Department's integrated enterprise-wide UID strategy and for the development, management, and use of unique identifiers and their associated authoritative data sources in a manner that precludes redundancy.
This Directive applies to the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), the Military Departments, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Combatant Commands, the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Defense, the Defense Agencies, the DoD Field Activities, and all other organizational entities in the Department of Defense (hereafter referred to collectively as the "DoD Components").
