Extensible Markup Language (XML)
XML is a simple and flexible information exchange format that is well suited to support web-enabled business applications. XML is also playing an increasingly important role in the exchange of a wide variety of data within the Department of Defense (DOD). To take advantage of XML and ensure interoperability, the Defense Logistics Management Standards Office (DLMSO) is developing XML schemas that support DOD enterprise integration and end-to-end customer business process reengineering objectives.

Item Unique Identification (IUID)
DLMSO is actively participating in the incorporation of UID in logistics business process. Go to the Unique Identification Tracking Committee (UITC) page. Other initiatives regarding unique item identification are encompassing the UITC program.
