Title; Associated Form; and OMB Number: Defense User Registration System (DURS); OMB Control Number 0704-0546.

Needs and Uses: DTIC requires all eligible users to be registered for access to DTIC's repository of access-controlled scientific and technical information documents. This system is called the Defense User Registration System, or DURS. The registration of a user enforces validation of an individual's identity, as well as that individual's persona (i.e., whether the individual is DoD, Federal government, or a contractor supporting the DoD or another federal agency) and that individual's authority to access limited and classified documents with distribution controls. A role-based environment based on a user's identification ensures security for DTIC's electronic information collection while the online systems increase availability of information to each user based on his or her mission needs.

Affected Public: Federal Government; Individuals or Households; Business or Other For-Profit; Not-For-Profit Institutions.
