Federal & Military Specifications Numerical Index
The Federal Government has issued more than 20,000 separate specifications describing items which it purchases or uses. These are divided into two broad categories, Military Specifications and Federal Specifications. The former are prepared by agencies of the Department of Defense and are mandatory for use by all Departments and Agencies of the DOD. Federal Specifications may be prepared by either military or civil agencies of the U.S. Government and are mandatory for use by all elements of the Federal Government.
In addition, there are Military Standards and Federal Standards and Interim Purchase Description (IPIDES).
When the number following the alphabetical prefix has “00” as its first two digits, this indicates that it is an Interim document which has not yet been coordinated with all other applicable agencies of the Federal Government. When reissued after coordination, the “00” is eliminated.
Revisions of Military and Federal Specifications are indicated by the alphabetical suffix. Thus, the current issue of PPP-F-320D superseded its predecessor document, PPP-F-320C. Further more, amendments to the documents frequently are issued between revisions. Hence, in all instances it is necessary to refer to the issue currently in effect. We have provided a listing of specifications for you reference and use, it is possible that these specs could have changed or been modified. It is recommended that a full current issue be reviewed to insure conformance.
