•  Intent is to facilitate mainstream logistics applications by identifying a
   baseline set of AIT.
•  Identifies AIT for assets by consolidation layer moving materiel through
   various supply chain nodes.
•  Provides vision for using AIT for efficient and effective data capture within
   supply and distribution operations.

    Requirements Remain Constant
•  Two Major Requirements for Suppliers
    •    Passive RFID Tagging at the case and pallet level in accordance with the Passive RFID
         DFARS Clause and the Supplier Implementation Plan
    •    Advance Shipment Notice (ASN) via User Defined File/File Transfer Protocol (UDF/FTP),
         Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) 856, or Web Page Entry
•  Specific Requirements:
    •    Data encoded on tag must be unique.
    •    Supplier must ensure the passive tag affixed to package is readable.
    •    Passive tag is affixed at the appropriate location on the specified level of packaging in
         accordance with MIL-STD-129P (Section 4.9.2) tag placement specifications.
    •    Contractor required to use tag identity types in accordance with the details located at:
    •    Contractor electronically submits an advance shipment notice in accordance with
         procedures at
•  A Passive RFID Supplier Information Guide that contains information
   detailing requirements for compliance is located at
           Passive RFID Contractual
            Requirements in Action
•  243,270 awards to 5,631 active suppliers have required
  Passive RFID tagging in the last 7 months
   –  Represents 52% of DLA’s active supplier base
   –  An increase of 110% over monthly average in early 2007
•  Noncompliant contracts are triggering discrepancy
  reports to item managers
