Army Acquisition Support Center (February 2006): acquisition, logistics and technology futures office (ALT-FO).

In keeping with the assistant secretary of the Army (acquisition, logistics and technology) military deputy's intent to integrate ALT doctrine and concepts into an overall coordinated combat service support strategy for the Army, the ALT-FO was stood up in November 2005 at the U.S. Combined Arms Support Command (CASCOM) on a provisional status. Meanwhile, the Acquisition Support Center (ASC) is developing Table of Distribution and Allowances (TDA) and corresponding Military Acquisition Position List (MAPL) positions to formalize the establishment of the new organization.

The ALT-FO is working a number of important issues affecting the Army Acquisition Corps:

* Base Stationing Plan. While not the lead organization, the ALT-FO has been working very closely with the Army Materiel Command's (AMC) Command Contracting, ASC, Army Field Support Command, and the Human Resource Command (HRC), to develop a base stationing plan for the modular contracting force design. This plan will enable HRC to start assigning contingency contracting officers to contracting teams and battalions.

* Modular Force Logistics Concept (MFLC)/Field Manual 4-93.41, Army Field Support Brigade (AFSB). The ALT-FO is collaborating with CASCOM and AMC in the development of the MFLC and finalizing the AFSB Field Manual Interim (FMI), 4-93.41. The importance of these two manuals can not be overstated. Together, they are intended to show new ways of conducting future operations using a modular force structure as a means to achieve desired capabilities.

* Joint Contracting and Contractor Management (JCCM). As the Army's lead, the ALT-FO continues to work with the J-4 on the development of this new Joint Publication.

The point of contact is the ALT-FO director, Army Col. Jacques Azemar, jacques.azemar@us.army.mil.
