"Meeting real-world requirements. Doing right by our people. Reducing excess. Being more efficient Squeezing costs. Setting priorities and sticking to them. Making tough choices. These are all things that we should do as a department and as a military regardless of the time and circumstance."

--Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates (at the Pentagon, January 6, 2011)

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 Department has established four goals for its logistics business operations:

* Provide logistics support in accordance with warfighters' requirements

* Institutionalize operational contract support

* Ensure that supportability, maintainability, and costs are considered throughout the acquisition cycle

* Improve supply chain processes, synchronizing from end-to-end and adopting challenging but achievable standards for each element of the supply chain

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