CONTRACTOR INTEGRATED TECHNICAL INFORMATION SERVICE (CITIS)
Includes all amendments and changes through Cancellation Notice 1, August 14, 2004
Additional Comments: CNCL NO S/S
This standard defines a set of core (see section 4) and tailorable (see section 5) Contractor Integrated Technical Information Service (CITIS) functions which collectively constitute a contractor provided service for electronic access to and delivery of contractually required digital data. It also defines support and ancillary functions necessary to efficiently utilize a CITIS. It does not address the implementation of a system that provides a CITIS, nor the use or content of data accessible via a CITIS.
This standard applies to all Defense system and equipment acquisition programs, major modification programs, and related research and development projects throughout their life cycle phases. CITIS is limited to Government Furnished Information (GFI) and data required by the Contract Data Requirements List (CDRL) negotiated for specific contracts.
This standard is part of the Computer-aided Acquisition and Logistic Support (CALS) strategy. The CALS strategy is applied to Defense system contracts in accordance with direction contained in DoDD 5000.1 and DoDI 5000.2. CITIS is generally acquired from prime contractors through a contract line item. When contracting for CITIS, the Government should develop a Government Concept of Operations (GCO). This information not only provides a basis for Statement of Work (SOW) requirements, it also provides offerors with additional information for proposing alternative solutions. The Government will provide the CITIS requirements in the SOW of the Request For Proposal (RFP) that results in the contract for CITIS.
Guidance for the implementation of CALS and CITIS is contained in MIL-HDBK-59. MIL-HDBK-59 also provides detailed information for developing the GCO and SOW, and for structuring the RFP to ensure that CITIS requirements are contractually implemented. MIL-HDBK-59 also addresses planned DoD infrastructure programs, such as the Joint CALS (JCALS) program, as gateways to CITIS.
This standard contains a set of requirements designed to be tailored for each contract by the contracting agency. The tailoring process intended for this standard is the deletion of non-applicable requirements.
