New task force and special office created to oversee equipment drawdown in Iraq.
The Army Materiel Command (AMC), the executive agent for resetting the Army, has set up the Responsible Reset Task Force (R2TF) to oversee Army equipment leaving Iraq as part of the drawdown scheduled to be completed by 2011. R2TF will ensure the visibility, accountability, and prompt movement of assets as they head for reset and refurbishment.
The Communications and Electronics Command Life Cycle Management Command has also created a new organization to aid drawdown efforts. The Special Project Office is working with R2TF to drawdown and move command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance equipment and personnel in Iraq.
AMC's asset-visibility and accountability efforts in the past few years have eased some of the burden associated with the drawdown of equipment. As of 11 November 2009, the Army had identified some 60,000 pieces of equipment, including trucks, trailers, and containers, to be moved out of Iraq and 22,000 items to be repositioned within the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility.
