    Class B Duty Uniform - This is the Duty uniform. There are three sub-classes of the Class B uniform for Daily Wear, Formal, and Ceremonies & Court situations. (See separate glossary terms.)

    Class C Work Uniform - This uniform is to be worn only during special work situations. It is not for daily wear.

    Class D Special Use Uniform - This is the Special Duty uniform, worn only for boat patrol, bike patrol, beach patrol, or beach interpretive programs.

    UAA - (Uniform Allowance Authorization) This form must be created for all new employees in order to establish a uniform account. Created at either the project or district level, it is sent electronically to a specific Website managed by the National Park Service (see Multi-Agency Uniform Contract).

      UAA Website - One of two Websites associated with the Uniform Program. This site is used to create or modify the individual's uniform account. Once created, portions of the information are transmitted to the Uniform Contractor. (See Uniform Contractor Web Site).

    Multi-Agency Uniform Contract - The Corps of Engineers (COE), the National Park Service (NPS,) and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS) have jointly advertised a contract for uniforms. NPS administers the contract through the Contracting Officer and the UAA Website functions. Each of the three agencies has a Contracting Officer's Technical Representative (COTR) for the contract.

      Uniform Contractor's Web Site - (http://www.vfsolutions.com.lma) Use this site to order uniform items. Using the information transmitted from the UAA Website, the contractor creates an account and a password, then mails this information to the employee. With this information, the employee can access the Uniform Contractor's Website and order the items on line.

    NRM Uniform Program - This program provides uniforms for Park Rangers, Managers, and other NRM specialists as established in ER 1130-2-550, Chapter 8. Care should be taken not to confuse the Natural Resource Management (NRM) Uniform Program with the Natural Resource Management (NRM) Maintenance Uniform Program.

    NRM Maintenance Uniform Program - The NRM Maintenance Uniform Program provides uniforms for maintenance personnel at lake projects. They are not for park rangers. (See ER 1130-2-550, Chapter 14.)
