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).
Document Categories in the DODSSP collection include:
Military / Performance / Detail Specifications

The Department of Defense Index of Specifications and
