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