The typical scenario of a medium to large Government vendor involves multiple manufacturing sites and/or multiple sub-contractors. These sites generate specific UID data that must be captured and compiled into a single consolidated data-source. UID Specialists can help take this recurring (and historical) data and pull it into a unified location. This repository allows for streamlined uploading to the UID Registry, thorough internal reporting, and fast response times to any customer audits.
There are multiple data sources that are required to fulfill the upload requirement to the UID Registry. At a high level those are manufacturing, shipping, and contracts. Even with a robust process in place there are opportunities for errors to be introduced into the data stream. A primary area for these errors to occur happens in the recording of the contractual information. In many instances, the exact CLIN or Ship-to-DoDAAC isn't known until the hardware is shipped.
UID Specialists will review all aspects of the data collected for accuracy. We will record these errors and their associated corrections as part of the history of the UID/contract. This will allow for a full Close-Loop-Corrective-Action (CLCA) to be performed and process modifications to be made if possible.
Finally, the data upload to the UID Registry. If all parts of your UID process are aligned, this should be the fastest and easiest step to complete. Even still, there times when issues will arise at this point. UID Specialists record the errors for CLCA review. We will also work with you and potentially the contracting off icier (if allowed) to correct the issue and resubmit the data to the Registry.
