Administrative Matters

AGENCY: Defense Acquisition Regulations System, Department of Defense 
(DoD).

ACTION: Final rule; Technical amendment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: DoD is issuing this technical amendment to direct contracting 
officers to the location of procedures relating to obtaining an account 
in the Electronic Document Access system. Further, current business 
systems across DoD have each developed methods of indexing contracts 
independently leading to data integrity problems between data sources. 
This technical amendment also provides the location of guidance on a 
uniform contract indexing methodology across DoD.

DATES: Effective Date: September 27, 2010.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Ynette R. Shelkin, Defense 
Acquisition Regulations System, OUSD (AT&L) DPAP (DARS), Room 3B855, 
3060 Defense Pentagon, Washington, DC 20301-3060. Telephone 703-602-
8384; facsimile 703-602-0350.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Current business systems across DoD have 
each developed methods of indexing contracts independently leading to 
data integrity problems between data sources. Defense Procurement and 
Acquisition Policy letter dated July 8, 2010, subject: Contract 
Indexing Standard, provides detailed guidance on mapping procurement 
instrument identification and supplementary procurement instrument 
identification numbers stored in the Electronic Document Access system 
to data elements reported in the Federal Procurement Data System. This 
memorandum aims to eliminate this confusion by establishing a uniform 
contract indexing methodology across DoD. This technical amendment adds 
language to the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation directing 
contracting officers to the location of this memorandum and its 
detailed guidance and of procedures relating to obtaining an account in 
the Electronic Document Access system.
