Abstract:

At the direction of the Secretary of Defense, the Defense Business Practice Implementation Board was tasked with providing recommendations on the merging of the Defense Logistics Agency DLA and the U.S. Transportation Command TRANSCOM. The focus of these recommendations was to take advantage of the significant opportunity to transform the Department of Defenses logistics capability while achieving substantial, quantifiable cost savings through a process oriented focus. The commercial analog for this approach, supply chain management, is universally recognized as the method that must be embraced by the Department to achieve needed transformational improvements in the efficiency and effectiveness of end-to-end logistics processes.
