A description is given of a cooperative program between the General Services Administration and the Naval Sea Systems Command to test paint procured for the Navy by GSA contract. Under this program, GSA agrees to recognize the validity of naval shipyard receipt testing of paints for conformance to specification requirements, such that GSA will enforce quality provisions of contracts based on shipyard test results without further testing by GSA laboratories. The program also provides a means for GSA to share test data with designated NAVSEA testing facilities. Included in the paint testing program is the determination of the minimum requirements for designated laboratories; testing capabilities and level of tests required; and of the major equipment necessary to perform the tests.
