Aah, I wish I had ready access to the "canned" response that was in my computer when I was working with an acquisition agency ... now I have to rely on faulty memory ...

The Department of Defense regularly reviews military specifications and standards for continued applicability and effectiveness. In 1996, then-Secretary Perry directed that whenever possible, existing international, national or industry specifications and standards should be used by preference, and he greatly speeded up the the rate of review. The eventual result will be that a MIL-STD or MIL-SPEC will exist only if it fills a military need that another document does not exist for.
Perhaps his decision was influenced by OMB Circular A119, 1993, Federal Participation in the Development and Use of Voluntary Standards, which (paraphrasing) required Agencies to adopt voluntary consensus standards.

A Weekend Thought...

None of these has totally disappeared. They have been incorporated into the current standards. The basics and essentials of "Quality Assurance" haven't changed. The words have been switched around, and nuances have arisen, some of which are valid, and some of which are nonsense, but their essence and core principles are not lost to time...

It is so nice to see a well maintained, active, and 'cared for' website. Marc and the other regulars do such a wonderful job.

They never seem to go away, Just this morning I was working on a quote for a project that requires conformance to Mil-1-3190-6A for dielectric testing.
