Previously recorded changes are removed from the title page, and all change markings
are deleted from text. The revision will bear the new publication date according to
Revision Summary Sheet. When a revision has been accomplished,
provide a revision summary sheet which summarizes the changes and the reasons they
were made, and identifies their potential impacts, both positive and negative. Impacts
on the following subject areas are of particular concern:
life cycle cost,
ASSIGNING PUBLICATION NUMBERS.
The technical working group that prepares the UFC will recommend the most
appropriate numerical series based on Appendix B (e.g., UFC 4-010-XX). The
preparing activity will forward the recommendation to for
assignment of the last two digits based on a master index.
ELECTRONIC FORMAT AND MEDIA.
Use MS Word or an equivalent software application that can easily and accurately
convert UFC source files to Adobe PDF. Drafts and final manuscripts must
incorporate figures and tables in proper position within the electronic source files so that
UFC printed from the files will accurately represent the UFC viewed electronically.
Upon approval of the UFC, the preparing activity provides the electronic files (MS
Word and PDF) to the other service offices (refer to the Foreword) by e-mail or file
transfer protocol (FTP), or on 3-inch disk, zip disk, or compact disc. The preparing
activity must ensure that NIBS gets the PDF file for publication on CCB and WBDG.
Additionally, the services may request that the preparing activity bookmark the Adobe
PDF file to allow prompt navigation through the UFC.
INDEX OF UFC.
Upon approval of a UFC, each service will update its own master list of UFC.
ARCHIVE OF CURRENT AND SUPERSEDED UFC.
Each service is responsible for maintaining records of current and superseded UFC,
including changes and revisions, for each UFC for which they are the preparing activity.
