Procurement Data Standard (PDS)

The Procurement Data Standard (PDS) is a system-agnostic data standard that is intended to be adopted and implemented DoD-wide for creation, translation, processing, and sharing of procurement action data. It defines the minimum requirements for contract writing system output to improve visibility and accuracy of contract-related data, to support interoperability of DoD acquisition systems and to standardize and streamline the procure-to-pay business process. Further, the PDS will improve visibility of contract-related data, enabling senior DoD leadership to make better informed business decisions. And finally, this data standard will support future migration to enterprise and federal systems and processes where appropriate.
