Abstract:

Each of the three transportation operating agencies TOAs--the Military Airlift Command MAC, the Military Sealift Command MSC, and the Military Traffic Management Command MTMC--operates under the industrial fund concept. There has been increasing congressional concern that the TOA industrial funds are no longer effective management techniques. This study reviews the operating practices of the TOAs. This review revealed that 1 Variations in TOA operating practices are caused by mission differences and management decisions 2 The industrial funds are still effective management techniques 3 Both the MAC industrial fund and DoD transportation, in general, can be strengthened by improving the TP-4 Transportation priority program 4 Restructuring the MAC tariff approach so that each channel is self-sustaining may be counter-productive and 5 The T-39 administrative aircraft program of the Air Force appears to be effective. Recommendations for action by the Assistant Secretary of DefenseInstallations and Logistics on many of the above findings are included.
