RMC Auditor Workshop June 21-22, 2007 GIDEP (7.3, 7.4, 8.) What is GIDEP? GIDEP (Government-Industry Data Exchange Program) is a cooperative activity between government and industry participants seeking to reduce or eliminate expenditures of resources by sharing technical information essential during research, design, development, production and operational phases of the life cycle of systems, facilities and equipment. What does GIDEP have to offer? Since GIDEP's inception, participants have reported over $1 BILLION in prevention of unplanned expenditures. That means without GIDEP, participants could have potentially realized additional expenses of over $1 billion. Proper utilization of GIDEP data can materially improve the total quality and reliability of systems and components during the acquisition and logistics phases of the life cycle and reduce costs in the development and manufacture of complex systems and equipment.
