DoD Collections Website


The DoD Information Collections program oversees the management, control, approval processing, and tracking of DoD Internal and Public Information Collections.

Our goals are to prevent DoD resources from being expended on redundant or obsolete information collections and to reduce the burden DoD imposes on the public.

This program is managed by the Office of Information Management (OIM) -formerly the Information Collections Branch (ICB)- located within Washington Headquarters Services, Executive Services Directorate, Directives Division.

Please explore this site for more information on collection types, the approval processes for both DoD Internal and Public Collections, document templates, and other relevant resources.
