The Secretary of State is the President's principal foreign policy advisor and is responsible for the formulation of foreign policy and the execution of approved policy. The Secretary has responsibilities, by virtue of law or Executive Order, with respect to such matters as international educational and cultural affairs, information activities, foreign assistance, food for peace, arms control and disarmament, supervision of programs authorized by the Peace Corps Act, social science research, immigration, and refugee assistance.

The Secretary has authority and responsibility to the full extent permitted by law for the overall direction, coordination, and supervision of interdepartmental activities of the United States government overseas. This authority includes continuous supervision and general direction of Peace Corps programs, economic assistance, military assistance, military education and training, and military sales programs.

The Office of Logistics Operations also supports approximately 30 other US government civilian agencies including several Foreign Affairs Agencies (i.e. United States Agency for International Development [USAID], Peace Corps [PC], Foreign Agricultural Service [FAS], Foreign Commercial Service [FCS], and Arms Control and Disarmament Agency [ACDA]).

Readiness (L&MR)

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.
