Forms may be developed for specific data collection tasks required within a UFC. To
make photocopying easier, each form should occupy a separate page.
CHANGES AND REVISIONS.
Changes and revisions to UFC must be coordinated with and approved by the
responsible tri-service discipline working group.
A change is appropriate when less than 40 percent of the total number of UFC pages
will contain new material. Changes may include the addition of entire chapters or
appendixes. The preparing activity issues a new electronic file that incorporates all
changes and retains the date of publication prior to the changes.
Preparing Activity. The preparing activity lists each change on the title
page under the record of changes, and marks the start of changed text with the number
of the change enclosed with right slant virgule symbols (\X\) and the end of changed
text with left slant virgule symbols (/X/) in bold type. Respectively, the letter "X"
represents the number of the change (see Figure 2-3). These change markings are not
used for complete chapter replacements; instead, complete chapter replacements must
have the change number and date identified at the top of the first page of the chapter
(see Figure 2-4).
On multiple-proponent UFC, proponents other than the preparing activity mark text
changes with the letter "X" enclosed with virgule symbols at the start and end of
changed text. Proponents other than the preparing activity will not assign change
numbers or record changes on title pages. As part of creating the new electronic file,
the preparing activity will replace the letter "X" with the appropriate change number and
update the title page accordingly.
Accomplish a complete revision when more than 40 percent of a UFC contains
changes. The preparing activity issues a new electronic file, incorporating all changes.
