Until 1987, the United States Coast Guards basic structure included twelve autonomous districts aggregated into two areas - a Headquarters and a number of specialized commands. District Commanders provided oversight for subordinate commands that delivered services to the public. Engineering and other support was provided by a combination of generic unit level resources, district staffs, contractors, and in some cases by Headquarters. In August 1986, the Commandant concluded that some consolidation of these common support functions on an area-wide basis would require fewer resources. The plan, developed by the project team, created the Maintenance and Logistics Commands MLCs on the East and West Coasts. These new MLCs consolidated support services allowed reprogramming support personnel to operational mission areas.
