The Department of Defense has more than two centuries of success in defending the Nation, deterring aggression, and keeping the peace worldwide. This nation's security depends on our defense installations as well as materiel that is available in the right capacities at the right place and at the right time. In today's environment, threatened by terrorist attacks on facilities and people, these resources are even more critical.

The Defense Department manages a comprehensive inventory of installations and facilities to ensure our nation has all the assets necessary to keep Americans safe. The Department's physical plant is huge by any standard, consisting of more than 600,000 individual buildings and structures located at more than 6,000 different locations or sites. Behind the high levels of readiness to which our warfighters are entitled is a $120 billion logistics enterprise (FY 2005), supporting more than $700 billion in planes, ships, tanks, and other transportation and warfighting equipment. Two key elements of that enterprise--Transportation Policy and Supply Chain Integration--are highlighted herein.

OSD Supply and Transportation Fellows Program

The Fellows program is designed to foster career development of mid-level military and defense civilian logistics professionals. The program provides participants an opportunity to gain a broad understanding of transportation and supply networks in preparation for leadership positions within DOD's supply and transportation communities.

The Assistant Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Supply Chain Integration--ADUSD (SCI)--leads the implementation of a modern, integrated materiel supply chain process that fully supports military operational requirements and that promotes customer confidence in the logistics process by building a responsive, cost-effective capacity to provide required products and services. The Office of the ADUSD (SCI) coordinates policy analysis, formulation, and implementation with the Military Services, Joint Staff, United States Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM), Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), and other Defense Agencies.


Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

On July 30, 2004, the Acting Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics signed a memorandum outlining policy for the use of RFID within the DOD. The strategy called for taking maximum advantage of the inherent life-cycle asset management efficiencies that can be realized with the use of RFID throughout the DOD. RFID is a transformational technology and will play a vital role in achieving the DOD vision for implementing knowledge-enabled logistics support to the warfighter through fully automated visibility and management of assets. RFID will directly enable the sharing, integrating, and synchronizing of data from the strategic to the tactical level as the advance ship notices are forwarded to the nodes in the supply chain.

Supply Chain Metrics

Similar to most enterprises, DOD is continually challenged to reduce supply chain costs and improve customer satisfaction. As the department transitions from traditional methods of support to industry-proven best practices, ADUSD (SCI) works closely with DOD Components to adequately measure and monitor the supply chain's overall performance to ensure that policy and process changes achieve the desired results.

Readiness Based Sparing (RBS)

RBS is an inventory requirements determination methodology that produces an inventory investment solution that meets end item performance requirements at minimum cost. RBS will deliver enhanced capabilities to the Department in several areas. First, it will enable a higher level of readiness at equal or lower cost. Second, it will identify items that are critical for weapons system support, and allow the Department, working with the commercial base, to develop support plans for routine and surge scenarios. Lastly, it will allow the DOD to run scenario analyses to determine the optimal way to support deployed operations based on timely data on requirements and resources available.

Commodity Management

Commodity Management aligns requirements and market dynamics to optimize total cost of ownership, ensure sources of supply and a strong supply base, and bring supplier innovation to weapons systems acquisition and sustainment. Implementation of commodity management across the Department will ensure that the Department identifies and supports an industrial base capable of meeting the Department's requirements. An understanding of the capabilities of the commercial supply base will allow the Department to identify innovative ways of working with commercial suppliers to meet warfighter needs while leveraging combined acquisition power of the entire Department.

Joint Regional Inventory Materiel Management (JRIMM)

JRIMM seeks to streamline the storage and distribution of materiel within a given geographic area, in order to eliminate duplicate materiel handling and inventory layers. Under JRIMM, all of the components in a selected geography work together to identify implementation steps to streamline materiel flow within that geography. Following a successful pilot implementation in the San Diego region, JRIMM is currently being implemented for all four Military Services and DLA on Oahu.

The Assistant Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Transportation Policy--ADUSD (TP)--oversees Department of Defense (DOD) transportation matters to include reviewing existing policies and developing new policies to create innovative solutions to meet the Department's transportation challenges. The Office of the ADUSD (TP) is charged with responsibility for policy guidance to ensure that a safe, efficient, and effective Defense Transportation System is available to combatant commanders during peacetime, mobilization, and wartime. ADUSD (TP) oversight includes the worldwide movement of unit and individual equipment and personnel, sustainment cargo, hazardous materials, arms, ammunition and explosives, and personal property and privately owned vehicle shipments for military members and their families. ADUSD (TP) represents the DOD on various interagency forums concerned with the security of the domestic transportation network, international passenger travel, customs requirements and the movement of mail. ADUSD (TP) coordinates policy analysis, formulation, and implementation with the Military Services, Joint Staff, United States Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM), Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), and other Defense Agencies and, as necessary, the commercial partners representing the travel, transportation, third party logistics, and information technology industries.



The ADUSD (TP) works closely with USTRANSCOM and other DOD Components to advise on distribution portfolio management issues and investments as well as various distribution initiatives that will improve overall support to the war fighter.

Force Movement

The ADUSD (TP) works closely with DOD Components to enable, through net-centric solutions, joint force movement processes and supporting re-engineering initiatives. Some of these initiatives include unit movement and Joint Theater Logistics Management to provide capability for the Joint Force Commander to apply logistics resources to generate and sustain full spectrum theater operations.

Freight Transportation

To frame the Defense Transportation Coordination Initiative (DTCI), ADUSD (TP) sponsored a network analysis of domestic freight movements, and the results indicate that reduced cycle times, increased distribution reliability and...
