The LOGSA Logistics and Engineering Center hosted a meeting of the
Army Item Unique Identification Integrated Product Team on July 21-23 at Redstone Arsenal.
The IPT was co-chaired by Larry Hill representing the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition Policy and Logistics, and Col. Michele Hammond representing Army headquarters G-4. The IPT had an attendance of more than 75 people with numerous others attending via video teleconference.
Key issues covered during this IPT included DoD IUID Registry, Army IUID Implementation Plan, Legacy System marking, Organizational roles relating to IUID, LOGSA Maintenance Consolidation Database System and a Small Arms Pilot.
The LOGSA-Army IUID Support Office hosted the meeting and served as executive secretary. This is the second time Logistics Support Activity has hosted the event and the fifth time the event has taken place. LOGSA serves as the Army's IUID support office. In this capacity, LOGSA is the primary focal point for submission of all Army IUID plans. Its support office receives, reviews and archives all IUID plans for the Army.
The Army IUID IPT was formally established in 2008 to establish governance, resolve issues and guide Armywide implementation of IUID. The process owners are DASA (APL) and Army headquarters G-4.
