Department of Defense Information Technology (IT) Registry Guidance.
This policy memorandum updates and supersedes the ASD (C3I) memorandum, - DoD Information Technology (IT) Registry,- February 21, 2001.
The Department currently maintains an Information Technology (IT) Registry to provide an accurate and reliable enterprise-wide systems inventory. The DoD Components system owners have made this possible by diligently
registering and keeping current their mission critical and mission essential systems. The purpose of this memorandum is to ask your support in making the IT Registry an even more integral component of the DoD enterprise.
The IT Registry is being expanded to meet new statutory and management reporting requirements in the areas of financial management, information security, and public key enabling. The attached DoD IT Registry Guidance
provides mandatory reporting requirements and deadlines, database schema, data submission instructions, and points of contact.
Your continued support and cooperation are absolutely essential to the ultimate success of the DoD IT Registry. I encourage DoD
Component CIOs to actively participate in the ongoing expansion of the IT Registry to ensure that the data is populated in a timely and accurate manner, and serves the needs of the Department. Your ideas regarding how we can make the DoD IT Registry better serve the Department are always welcome.
My point of contact for this memorandum and the DoD IT Registry is Dr. Asghar Noor, 703-602-0980, ext. 181 or email: email@example.com.
