Project Code Information

A project code is a standard logistics data element that allows the Department of Defense to accumulate cost and performance data for requisition-related transactions related to special programs, exercises, projects, and operations.  Project codes contain four categories and the authority to assign project codes varies by category.  The authoritative source for each category of project codes is either maintained with the Services or the Project Code Management System (PCMS).  DLM 4000.25, Volume 2, Appendix 7.13 includes the four categories and associated procedures.  The Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), Office of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (CJCS) and the DoD MILSTRIP Administrator can assign and manage Category C Project Codes.  OSD and the CJCS can assign and manage Category D Project codes. Category C and D Project Codes are available at the following links:
