Department of Defense (DOD).


The Office of the Secretary of Defense Logistics staff formulates and recommends defense policy and oversees the execution of approved policy. DOD logistics includes all efforts to deploy, support, maintain, and sustain DOD personnel, equipment, and weapons systems in fully mission capable condition whenever and wherever required. The logistics budget consisted of $194 billion in fiscal year 2009--about 30 percent of the DOD budget, excluding supplemental appropriations. The DOD logistics goals are to:


* Ensure effective Logistics support for current operations

* Ensure effective management of "contractors on the battlefield"

* Integrate Life Cycle Management principles into DOD and Service acquisition and sustainment processes

* Integrate supply chain operations that effectively support warfighters and are efficient from source of supply to point of consumption


Two key elements of the DOD logistics enterprise--Transportation Policy and Supply Chain Integration--are highlighted herein.
