Department of Defense Single Stock Point (DODSSP)

The Department of Defense Single Stock Point provides information and access to Military Specifications, Standards, and related documents prepared by or adopted by the Department of Defense.

The duties of the DODSSP include electronic document storage, indexing, cataloging, maintenance, publish-on-demand, distribution, and sale of Military Specifications, Standards, and related standardization documents and publications comprising the DODSSP Collection.

The ability to find and review military standards in a timely manner is essential so you can determine if commercial items can be substituted for Mil Specs.

Although the DODSSP Active Collection contains over 40,000 line items, not all documents specified in Government procurements are included (e.g. engineering drawings, some Departmental documents, and a majority of all Non-Government / Industry Standards).
