Abstract:

The prevalent utilization of substituted major items for authorized major items requires that the management of these substitutes be improved throughout DARCOM. This report investigates four primary areas of interest to HQ DARCOM the cost of redistributing existing substitutes, the rationale for substituting non-type classified items for authorized items, a policy for within-LIN substitutions, and the feasibility of loaning rather than issuing substitute items. Various side aspects of substitution are also investigated. Recommendations are proposed. Author
