Abstract:

We initiated the evaluation in response to a request from the Director for Logistics JA, the Joint Staff, for information on the U.S. Marine Corps Maritime Prepositioning Force Enhancement MPFE Program. The Director was particularly interested in data on force acquisition initiatives the type, cost, and availability of the equipment to be added and whether the program responded to the stated warfighting requirements of the geographic Unified Commanders. To support the Directors responsibility to brief the status of MPFE to all Unified Commanders during the August Joint Requirements Oversight Council tour, we presented an In Process Review to the Director on July 28, 1995. The evaluation report is the follow-up to that briefing. In gathering data, we reviewed key planning documents, such as the Defense Planning Guidance, Bottom Up Review, and the Mobility Requirements Study to ascertain the general guidance and tasking provided to the Unified Commanders. We then met with the Joint Staff, Navy, and Marine Corps headquarters personnel in the National Capital Region and with the staffs or commanders of 4 of the 5 geographic Unified Commands and 12 of their 16 Component Commands. The purpose of our meetings and interviews was to validate the costs and availability of equipment and to interpret the priority assigned to the MPFE Program by the Unified Commanders.
