  • WAWF/UID/RFID Industry Users Group (Status: active)
    This group was formerly the Wide Area Work Flow (WAWF) Users Group, and has been expanded to include IUID and RFID users. The group is co-sponsored by AIA and DCMA. The purpose of this group is for the user community within industry to communicate issues and questions to DoD regarding WAWF, Item UID, and RFID. This group is focused on tactical aspects of implementation for these initiatives. The group will meet 3-4 times per year.
  • Property Management Working Group (PMWG)

  • Joint Aeronautical Commanders Group (JACG)
    The Joint Aeronautical Commanders Group (JACG) has encouraged the UID Policy Office to explore the multiple issues associated with IUID that impact aeronautical operations across the services. Issues to date include Single Process Initiatives, changed to technical documentation, and the legacy data environment.
