DLMS Implementation Archives

This page contains dated documents pertinent to implementation of the Defense Logistics Management Standards (DLMS) implementation and migration from the Defense Logistics Standard Systems (DLSS).

1. Migration to DLMS:
The Under Secretary of Defense Adobe PDF Icon memorandum (with attachment) on Migration to the DLMS and Elimination of the Military Standard Systems (MILS) (also known as Defense Logistics Standard Systems (DLSS)) requires action to eliminate the generation and transmission of logistics transactions using the 80-character MILS formats. The data-limited MILS formats prevent tracking an item throughout its life cycle across the entire supply chain using Unique Identifiers (UIDs) and other business transformation initiatives. The related Defense Logistics Management Standards Office  memorandum provides additional information associated with this process.

The following are related guidance, information, DoD Component plans from DRID #48 and UID/DLMS migration, migration waivers submitted, and questions related to DLMS migration. See related Adobe PDF Icon memorandum from Office of the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense, Transportation Policy.
