Abstract:

The Life Cycle Logistics career field comprises professionals responsible for planning, development, implementation and execution of effective and affordable weapons, materiel and information systems product support strategies. Life Cycle Logistics encompasses both acquisition and sustainment activities spanning a weapon systems life cycle. It is today the third largest Defense Acquisition Workforce career field, made up of more than 17,000 civilian and military personnel from the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and a range of Department of Defense DoD agencies. It has not, however, always been so.
