Do I need to UID?

Our clients who are DoD contractors ask us to help them figure out if the UID marking and reporting clause apply to items on their contracts.

Defense contracts can be quite complicated so how do we know what to look for?

The first thing to look for is a clause that references DFARS 252.211-7003. This will be titled Item Identification and Valuation.

If your contract includes this clause, then all items with an acquisition value of more than $5,000 will need to be treated as UID items. In addition, the clause may well itemize items with an acquisition value of less than $5,000 that will also need to be marked.

The actual methods of marketing and how you go about it are left to you – you just need to make sure that everything you do is in compliance with MIL-STD-130. Also, you need to make sure you can report all the required UID data to WAWF or the UID Registry.

Need to know more? Consider attending our DoD Labeling Seminar, or contact me to discuss your compliance needs in detail. You can also download a copy of our MIL-STD-130 eBook here.
