(Logistics & Materiel Readiness)

The mission of the Office of the Secretary of Defense Logistics and Materiel Readiness is to provide globally responsive, operationally precise and cost-effective joint logistics support for the projection and sustainment of America's warfighters. One of the top priorities of the Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition, Technology, & Logistics), is supporting forces who are engaged in Overseas Contingency Operations, which includes timely and reliable logistics support. The Department continually strives to improve the efficiency of its logistics processes, organizations, and systems-- while maintaining readiness and ensuring effective support for America's warfighters. The Assistant Secretary of Defense for Logistics and Materiel Readiness established four logistics goals:

* Ensure effective logistics support for current operations;

* Ensure effective management of contractors;

* Integrate life cycle management principles into DOD and Service acquisition, and implement product support assessment recommendations;

* 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.
