MEMORANDUM FOR MEMBERS OF THE DEFENSE LOGISTICS BOARD
OFFICE OF FORCE TRANSFORMATION
SUBJECT: Logistics Transformation Roadmap
Focused Logistics is the Department's Joint Functional Concept for comprehensive, integrated logistics capabilities necessary to support future warfighting capabilities and Joint Operational Concepts. The Concept includes sufficient capacity in the deployment and sustainment pipeline, appropriate control over the pipeline from end to end, and a high degree of certainty to the supported joint force commander that forces, equipment, sustainment, and support will arrive where needed and on time. Additionally, this covers redeployment and reconstitution of units and material. Successful implementation of this broad concept requires a number of specific enabling strategies.
One of those strategies must be a coherent approach to implement a distributed and adaptive logistics capability. This strategy will be referred to as the Logistics Transformation Roadmap, in support of Focused Logistics.
The Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Logistics and Materiel Readiness) will convene a Flag Officer/General Officer group of key stakeholders, including representatives from the requirements, logistics, materiel, and warfighter communities. The roadmap will provide a coherent way forward, including milestones and resources, that encompasses the Force-Centric Logistics Enterprise, ongoing Distribution Process Owner efforts, Sense and Respond Logistics, and Joint Theater Logistics Management. The product of this group will be a Transformation Roadmap for integrating logistics from point-of-effect to source of supply/services, across Services and Defense Agencies. A draft approach should be available in early June 2004.
I will review the draft approach in coordination with CJCS, Commander USJFCOM, Commander USTRANSCOM, and the Office of Force Transformation.
To assist with this critical undertaking, I ask for your active participation and support. My point of contact for this effort is Mr. Lou Kratz, ADUSD (Logistics Plans & Programs); available by phone at 703-614-6082 or via e-mail at Louis.Kratz@osd.mil.
