Technical Information Division 

Technical Information Division

Mission

The Technical Information Division is concerned with all aspects of technical documentation: concept, analysis, preparation, management, control, and dissemination. The division fields of interest include: configuration management of drawings, specifications and digital data; management of engineering drawings, specifications and standards; data management; policies and processes; computer aided documentation techniques; and ISO requirements.

Both government and industry have access to a group of experienced and responsible specialists and administrators from various sectors of industry who are well qualified to assist in the formulation of requirements for technical documentation. Division members participate as individuals rather than representatives of their respective companies.

The division has development an administrative responsibility over the NDIA Configuration and Data Management (CDM) professional certification program. The section's primary activity is career development of individuals in the CDM discipline through preparation training for certification, the administration of examinations, and the award of certifications. This program has become recognized throughout government and industry as the most sought after CDM certification because of its career enhancement potential.
