Abstract:

Senior Army leaders must fully embrace executive agency EA to ensure the U.S. Army continues meeting its bulk petroleum mission today and well into the future. To do so, these leaders must first understand what EA is and then comprehend the Armys bulk petroleum mission and how it relates to EA. They must understand the Army petroleum organization for force management and policy development and how they relate to EA. Last, but not least, senior leaders need to know the changes necessary to take full advantage of EA. These same leaders must fully embrace the necessary changes and become full, participating partners with the Defense Logistics Agency DLA and the other Services to breathe life into EA for bulk petroleum. This new approach to managing a commodity is expected to provide the opportunity for senior Army leaders to improve the Armys ability to perform its bulk petroleum mission and to enhance its relevancy by being a principle architect in the new strategic system for managing bulk petroleum. The Army will benefit by ensuring bulk petroleum logistics remain a combatforce multiplier. The end result will be better bulk petroleum support for all U.S. land-based forces.
