ATTENTION DCMA PERSONNEL: Any employee who becomes aware of a Specialty Metals non-compliance must report the occurrence immediately to the DCMA Headquarters GIDEP Program Manager, Quality Assurance Directorate, at (804) 734-0411 or firstname.lastname@example.org for processing.
DCMA is responsible for reporting occurrences of supplier Specialty Metals non-compliances as defined in Section 2533b of Title 10 United States Code (U.S.C.). Once DCMA becomes aware of a specialty metals non-compliance, its occurrence will be verified through DCMA internal processes by acquisition, legal and technical resources. Verified occurrences of specialty metals non-compliances will be communicated and reported to Government departments and agencies and to Government contractors through the utilization of Government Industry Data Exchange Program (GIDEP) Agency Action Notices (AANs). The AAN-Us will contain sufficient information such that all recipients will be fully aware of the details of specialty metals non-compliances. AANs distribute problem information issued by a Government department or agency to GIDEP participants who include Government and Government contractor members. Such notices may be restricted to Government only members of GIDEP (Agency Action Notice Limited distribution (AAN-L)) or may be released to all GIDEP participants (Agency Action Notice-Unlimited distribution (AAN-U)).
DCMA will communicate information to Government contractors, describing occurrences of verified specialty metals non-compliances by generating GIDEP AAN-Us. Specialty metals non-compliance AAN-Us will contain non-sensitive information only. Issuing these notices will allow DCMA to inform all Government contracted organizations who participate in the GIDEP.
DCMA workforce personnel will be informed of verified specialty metals non-compliances through the DCMA Forum, which is used to notify individuals of issues of significance that may require risk assessment and surveillance.
