Item Unique Item Identification

iuid_logo_mediumItem Unique Item Identification (IUID) is a DoD strategic imperative. IUID is an asset identification system instituted by the United States Department of Defense (DoD) to uniquely identify assets. Items are distinguished from one another by the assignment of a unique item identifier (UII) in the form of a data string encoded in a 2-dimensional bar code and securely affixed to the asset. Once assigned to an item the IUID is never changed even if the item is modified or reengineered. The requirement is based on the value proposition that UID of items provides a joint data capability that enables item tracking in DoD business systems and provides reliable and accurate data for management, financial accountability, and asset management purposes.
