Abstract:

This document provides program and project managers with guidance for developing and implementing a corrosion prevention and control program for DoD weapon systems and infrastructure. It includes corrosion-related policy management planning and technical and design considerations that should be addressed for a viable design. This guidance is in accordance with the DoD Corrosion Prevention and Control policy letter, signed by the Acting Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics USDATL, 12 November 2003 see Attachment 1, and the Facility Corrosion Prevention and Control memorandum, signed by the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Installations and Environment, 10 March 2005 Appendix F to Volume III. Program and project managers perhaps more than any other group greatly influence DoDs corrosion-related cost, safety, and reliability impacts during the acquisition of systems and infrastructure. That is why Volumes I and III of the Corrosion Prevention and Control Planning Guidebook are targeted to them. The volumes identify the materials, processes, techniques, and tasks required to develop and integrate an effective corrosion prevention and control program during all phases of DoD weapon system and infrastructure development. The objective is to minimize the effects of corrosion on life-cycle costs, readiness, reliability, supportability, safety, and structural integrity. Volume II of this guidebook focuses on equipment sustainment and includes information on life- cycle logistics and the development of sustainment corrosion programs for weapon systems. Following the guidance in this document in conjunction with applicable program and technical documentation will result in the best possible balance between acquisition and life-cycle costs for DoD systems.
