Meet IUID Compliance Without the Headache

The U.S. Department of Defense maintains item Unique Identification, or IUID, standards that require suppliers and contractors to uniquely identify most tangible property, including components and kit parts, throughout an item’s full lifecycle of service.

The mandate will have requirements on government suppliers and service providers. These government contractors need to create UID (or Unique IDentification) for their finished products and submit the IUID data to DOD’s IUID Registry. They will also need to utilize the DoD’s Wide Area Work Flow (WAWF) component of the government’s Invoicing, Receipt, Acceptance, and Property Transfer (iRAPT) system.

To achieve IUID compliance, DoD suppliers need to:

  • Create a UID for all components and embed them in the finished products
  • Create a UID for the finished product and establish the parent-child tree of UIDs
  • Submit the UID date to the Wide Area Workflow via DD250 or the DoD IUID Registry

Similarly, service providers for the DoD need to:

  • Update the IUID registry when Government Property is received, delivered, shipped, consumed, disposed, and/or transferred
  • Apply UID retroactively to legacy GFP

These requirements can be challenging for contractors to meet. Not only do government contractors need to track all of their newly acquired GFP, they often must track legacy assets as well.

This all must be done accurately, or the contractor may receive Corrective Action Requests (CARs).

How can a contractor meet these requirements in a cost-effective way?

The solution is eQuip. Read on to learn how eQuip helps government contractors navigate the complexities of IUID requirements without sacrificing valuable time and resources.

Why Use eQuip for IUID Assets?

Accelerate the IUID process

Working with the IUID Registry used to be tedious and inefficient for contractors. But now the eQuip IUID functionality makes it easy to create a UID and validate it with the IUID Registry. Export a flat file to add assets to the Registry or update assets.

Keep the IUID Registry up-to-date

While maintaining accuracy in the IUID Registry is often a requirement, it often falls to the bottom of the to-do list. This is especially true when assets move or are disposed of. But with eQuip’s IUID tool, updating the registry is quicker and easier. You can get updates out of the way, so you can get back to tackling the big tasks.

Save time on label-making

It can be difficult to make sure all assets are marked as they should according to DoD policy. Use eQuip to catch up on labeling legacy assets, or create labels for new acquisitions. Generate IUID MIL-STD-130 labels right in the system, either individually or as a group. Send labels to a thermal label printer as a PDF.
