During this period, Headquarters, 1st Logistical Command and the headquarters of the four support commands were reorganized to provide Assistant Chiefs of Staff in principal functional areas rather than directors. The Retrograde and Disposal Directorate was abolished and duties redistributed between Supply, Maintenance and Transportation. Review Boards were established to monitor major logistical, contractual and resource problems and increased contingency planning to meet a variety of forseeable conditions dealing with escalation as well as de-escalation of the conflict, historical analysis of logistical operations, security of logistical operations and comparative analysis of resources versus requirements in each of the support commands. Efficiency and economy in logistical operations have improved during the last 92 days, but there is still much to do. Phase I projects of the Command and Control Improvement Program are being refined and extended to correct remaining problem areas in general supply, ammunition, transportation, maintenance, and property disposal.
