Small government contractors now have a simple way to comply with Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) Case 2015-D035 and the requirements of FAR 52.245-1(f)(1)(ii), DFARS 252.245-7001(b) and NFS 1852.245–74(c)(2): marking and tagging government furnished property (GFP) with a “unique identification number (license tag).”
Economies of scale disrupted
So often small businesses have trouble competing with the economies of scale that benefits giant enterprises. Enterprise asset management (EAM) is just such an example. For the largest organizations, particularly those doing business with the government of the Unites States, this has been the case until recently. Now, in the age of the internet, the smallest contractors can benefit from miniaturized enterprise asset management (mEAM).
A service for tiny government contractors
Imagine a do-it-yourself security kit originally developed by the police in 1963, researched extensively in field trials nationwide and released with the backing of the Department of Justice in 1979. It’s called Operation ID and it’s still endorsed by the FBI, police and sheriffs. In the age of the internet, you can have a superior Operation ID strategy delivered in an envelope right to your small business or home.
The unique identification number (UIN) is the key
As small government contractors, it’s less important to know the difference between a unique identifier (UI), unique identification (UID), unique item identifier (UII) or an Item unique identification (IUID). The hard part is getting your hands on a globally unique identification number (UIN).
