Abstract DoD has had policy encouraging the use of NGSs since 1962, and it has been a federal government-wide policy since 1982 when the Office of Management and Budget first issued Circular A-119,Federal Participation in the Development and Use of Voluntary Standards and in Conformity Assessment Activities. Both in the case of DoD and government-wide policy, establishing NGS guidance was a way for policymakers to catch up with effective business practices already widely exercised. The earliest example we can find of DoD relying on NGSs dates to 1917, when the Army began using an SAE International standard for sparking plugs used on internal combustion engines. Our NGS policy was far from being an innovation dreamed up by ivory-tower policy wonks in Washington; rather, it was the identification and generalization of a best practice long before best practice was a common buzz phrase.
