Hi i m a form 55
Hi! I’m a Form 55.

Somebody out there wants a report that was written on your base.

I’ve been sent here to collect the signature from the releasing authority – can you point me in the right direction?

~~We have to figure out where to send this little guy~~

  • To Release Documents by a Form 55

    • Determine if document is older than 1962

    • If earlier than 1962

      • We have a legally approved letter on file that allows the AFMC STINFO Office to receive the Form 55 from DTIC

      • STINFO Officer analyzes listed office

        • STINFO works with the History Office, PA, etc.

        • If still open, document goes to that office, that office completes the Form 55

        • If the designated owner no longer exists

          • Find related office – anywhere in AFMC or other command or service

          • Find scientist or engineer who knows technology

          • If other command or service, return Form 55 to DTIC with recommendation

        • History Office helps with “hard to find”

    • If newer, DTIC sends Form 55 to the appropriate office or calls the AFMC STINFO Office

Afmc works as a team1
AFMC Works as a Team

  • History Office helps with “hard to find”

    • If no available office, the History Office finds the best available scientist

    • Determine distribution statement

    • If document should become “A”

      • Document sent to PA

      • PA might send for Policy and security review

      • If document becomes “A”, document is stamped with the Case Number, the date determined and the reviewers initials

    • Document returned to STINFO Office via the History Office

      • STINFO Office notifies DTIC, etc. of distribution statement changes and forwards the completed Form 55


  • Get a team that can get a decision

  • Notify all applicable offices of decision

  • Return Form 55 to DTIC
