Item Unique Identifier Registry (IUID) - Web Based Training
 

Purpose

Item Unique Identification (formerly Unique Item Identification - UID) is the system of marking and valuing tangible property furnished by the DoD and making the item information available in support of DoD logistics and contracting. The DoD can track the tangible item in maintenance, repair, and/or supply. For small business and commercial items, the expectation is that the items will be marked concurrent with delivery. The policies, standards, and procedures of this system are managed by the UID Program Office.


Background

Unique Identification (UID) is an essential program for the war fighter and for you. It supports DoD operational readiness and benefits your business. DFARS 211.274-1 - General mandates Item Unique Identification (IUID) and valuation as a system of marking and valuing items delivered to DoD that enhances logistics, contracting, and financial business transactions supporting the United States and coalition troops.

What requires an IUID?

Contracts require DoD recognized unique identification (UID) for all property items delivered to the Government if any one of the following conditions is met:

  • The acquisition cost (unit cost) is $5000 or more
  • It is either a serially managed item, a mission essential item, a controlled inventory piece of equipment, a reparable item, or a consumable item
  • It is a component of a delivered item
  • The program manager has determined that UID is required

IUID Registry Responsibility

Your job is to ensure the visibility of government furnished property by submitting the Unique Item Identifier (UII) data elements to the IUID Registry. The IUID Registry is a database operated by the Defense Logistics Information Service. It collects Government Furnished Property IUID information and distributes it to authorized Registry users. You submit the UII data elements to the IUID Registry during the process of creating a Receiving Report (DD250), Reparables Receiving Report, Combo, or GFP Transfer/Receipt using PIEE.


Benefits for the DoD?

UID will improve the time it takes to equip our warfighter.

  • It provides better item intelligence for warfighters for operational readiness
  • It improves item visibility
  • It ensures accurate DoD property valuation and accountability
  • It improves inventory access
  • It lowers item management costs

Benefits for the Vendor/Supplier?

Your participation in the UID Program is a smart business move.

  • It avoids lost property during the transportation process
  • It avoids duplicate requisitions
  • It enables error-free data transfer


Overview of Roles

  • Contractor – This access allows Contractors to input, update, correct and query item data.

  • General Purpose API – This access allows government users to create a system interface with the IUID Registry which will allow them to query all data.

  • Common Access API – This access allows users to create a system to system interface with the IUID Registry which will allow them to query specific data in the IUID Registry (verification, validation, retrieval).

  • Inquiry – VIEW ONLY access to the IUID registry for uniformed military, DOD civilian employees, and DOD-sponsored Contractors.

  • Legacy Submitter – UII input and maintenance access to the IUID registry for uniformed military, DOD civilian employees, and DOD-sponsored Contractors.

  • Data Correction roles – responsible for initiation, review and approval of mass corrections to the IUID Registry.

New acquisition deliveries of end items will be submitted via the PIEE Receiving Report. PIEE has added the capability to capture "Mark" information and all associated fields based upon the current IUID Registry data entries, validations and edits for new items. The following documents will have the capability to capture “Mark” information for the new UID (Parent UII and Embedded UII) items.

  • Receiving Report
  • COMBO
  • Receiving Report with Purchase Card as method of payment
  • Energy Receiving Report
  • Energy COMBO

In addition, the letter ‘I’ and ‘O’ will not be allowed within the Line Item number of all document types.

New Information:

  • The routing of XML/Flat Files from the customer to GEX to the IUID Registry will not change.
  • Legacy item XML/Flat File submission via GEX will not change; XMLs must be submitted with schema v5.1.1 and Flat Files with v6.0.
  • All Government Users must enter a valid DoDAAC upon first sign-in if a DoDAAC is not already on their account.
  • The IUID marking requirements will not be changing.

The purpose of this ECP was to update WAWF in order to permit 15 Product/Service ID and qualifier pairs on the following document types (764):

  • Receiving Report
  • Energy Receiving Report
  • Reparables Receiving Report
  • Corrected Receiving Report
  • Purchase Card Receiving Report
  • Micropurchase Receiving Report
  • Property Transfer Document

All WAWF document types have been updated to rename the data elements “Stock/Part Number Type” and “Stock/Part Number” to “Product/Service ID Qualifier” and “Product/Service ID”, respectively (764).

During receipt (via the web or external), if a line item does not contain a National Stock Number (NSN) and there are fewer than 15 Product/Service ID and qualifier pairs, receivers will have the ability to enter one NSN on that line item (778).

  • This applies to all line items (IUID or not).
  • This is limited to the Receiving Report, Corrected Receiving Report, Energy Receiving Report, Reparables Receiving Report, Purchase Card Receiving Report, and Property Transfer Documents.

NonUII GFP process within the IUID Registry was updated to capture all of the data in the WAWF Property receipt document.

All of the contract data captured in the WAWF Property receipt document will be populated to the contract section of the Non-UII GFP. The Non-UII GFP Query view and the Update Non-UII GFP will show the contract data on the Contract Information section.

When the user views the Non-UII GFP by the line, only the group of items related to the selected line will be displayed. This will cover the following Non-UII Queries:

  • GFP Reconciliation Query
  • GFP Custody By Contract Query
  • GFP Custody By CAGE/DUNS/DoDAAC Query
  • GFP Property Transactions Query
  • Promised GFP Query
  • Non UII GFP Query

All Product/ Service ID Qualifiers and Product/ Service IDs from the WAWF application will be populated to the IUID Registry.

An Acquisition Cost is required when converting a Non-UII GFP to a UII GFP.

The Custody data will be required when converting a Non-UII GFP to a UII GFP. The system will not display the Custody page when the Non-UII GFP document contains the Custody data. The Custody data will be populated from the Non-UII GFP to the UII GFP and will be displayed on the Record Info page.

All elements of the custody will follow GFP validation requirements.

The purpose was to allow both the Condition Code and Lifecycle Event to be modifiable for all line items within the IUID Registry.

When displaying and updating the Condition Code associated with an item that has a serial number, the IUID Registry will display the Serial Number associated with that item. Condition Code is associated with single item bins.

When displaying and updating data related to a Lifecycle Event of an item where a Serial Number is associated with the item, the IUID Registry will display the Serial Number. The Lifecycle Event may be applied to single item bins or multi item bins.

  • If a Lifecycle Event is Exchanged, Leased, Loaned or Reintroduced - the bin must be a single item and the Serial Number is required.

The purpose was to enable the revised GFP Attachment and new Registry view. This will require:

  1. Create a GFP Attachment Schema that contains the enhanced GFP Attachment data. (NG)
  2. Develop the transformation code from the GFP Attachment PDF to the GFP Attachment Schema format. (NG)
  3. Modify the IUID Registry to capture and store the GFP Attachment data.
  4. Modify the IUID Registry to display the GFP Attachment so that it looks like the original attachment.
  5. Create a method for the user to electronically access the Attachment data – perhaps an API that transmits the Attachment XML to a consuming system.

The “IUID Tool Set”: is an Application tool for facilitating the complete data correction process from submittal to registry interfacing-

  • Input single or multiple entries
  • Eliminate need for helpdesk technician to write code or script
  • Minimize typing inputs
  • Built in measurement system (metrics)

The data corrections functionality has been developed in the IUID web toolset to:

  • Process user data corrections:
    • Submission
    • Queuing
    • Approval
    • Execution
  • Provide controlled access / change management:
    • A Reviewer Validation
    • An Approver Validation (IUID PMO)
