Grogar A study of the assignment of responsibilities for man- aging logistics functions throughout the army reveals that no smgle officer on the DA Staff or that of a major command staff has responsibility for managing the to- tal logistics system see paragraph Slight variations in organization are reflected in the airborne, air assault, armor, mechanized, and infantry divisions. Annual availability of appropriated funds can be ignored as a factor in timing purchases. Industrial funding eliminates accounting for several appropriations, allotments, and suballot- ments by using the single revolving fund concept. The logistics mission is derived from DOD pro- grams.

Under conditions short of war, the scope of the logistics and administrative responsibilities exercised by the commander of a unified command is consistent with the peacetime limitations imposed by legislation, departmental policy or regulations, budgetary considerations, local conditions, and such other specific conditions as are prescribed by the Secretary of Defense rey the JCS. Programing proceeds under guidance issued by the OSD.
The process is performed to acquire weapon systems or major end items needed to create and maintain a military capabil- ity. By budgeting according to program elements, on the other hand, appropriations can be made according to some kind of optimum payback criteria.
Often an R3SP turns into a refuel operation or unit distribution effort because of inadequate triggers. They also must understand the princi- ples covering the requirements processes as well as the processes for satisfying the requirements. Through knowledge of logistics, we learn we create weapons and forces and what to do to con- trol them.
In a broad sense, the acquisition process has three separate phases: First, logistics is a command responsibility. Other separate defense agencies are organized along functional lines, and the missions are relatively simple in comparison with those of the military departments.
It provides the substance that physically permits an army to live and move and have its being. Each permanent installation is assigned mis- sions forxcom a troop stationing plan which are used to prepare the installation master plan.
Logistics is a major system consisting of a group of functional subsystems. The Departments of the Army, Navy, and Air Force are major elements of the national security structure and the national military structure.
This structure incor- porates the processes of a logistics system discussed m paragraphbut is oriented, more toward logistics functions of the Army in the field. Organizations are fixed or semi-fixed. Logistics system efficiency requires effective interrelationships among all func- tional parts of the system.
Congress wants to know what a system is expected to do and where the services are going with those systems. Planning for these facilities is based on operations and maintenance analyses, equipment design drawings, specifications, ana other documentation necessary for defining types of facilities, locations, space needs, en- vironment, duration, frequency of use, personnel in- terfaces, installation activities, training requirements, test functions, and an assessment of existing facilities.
Navy Retstates several principles of logistics which must be under- stood by civilian and military leaders for successful employment of military forces to acconvplish political objectives.
To keep it current, specific updating procedures have been prescribed by DOD. For example, NSC nas an indirect impact when it recommends national strategic objectives.
The MTP contains all the planning and actions re- quired to provide logistics support for such sys- tems. In addition to providing logistics support to units located on the installahon, installation commanders perform area support functions for Reserve components.
From this level, there must be the perception and identity of threat. Moreover, it comments on their attainability considering fiscal responsibility, manpower resources, and materiel availability as as technology and industrial capacity. Unclassified — fort hood — u. The sustained report of these weapons and forces is the consumer phase. The industrial fund concept encourages cross-servicing among the military departments and agencies of DOD to obtain the most economical use of facilities.
General Because the Army is not a self-contained, self- supporting organization, it must receive some sup- port from governmental organizations, and other elements of the Department of Defense DODthat have been assigned support responsibilities by laws, DOD regulations, and other authority.

Therefore, logistics has a dual nature; it changes its nature as it moves from the field closest to the ret, which is producer logistics, and goes into the field which is closest to combat, which is con- sumer logistics.

Tetaur A further requirement is their willingness to work to achieve and the required technical skills and understanding of how logistics relates to other elements of the miutary, in relation to business and industry, and the Government as a whole.

The purpose of this program is to assist the commander in accomplishmg those functions relat- ing to unit readiness. In theory, the system enables Congress to end what has been a piece- meal operation, and to deal with the issue of overall Federal spending, weighing programs against each other, ana deciding where the emphasis and the money should go. In general, the Army consolidates certain ac- counts this rrg done at DA level to make its budget comparable with DOD program elements; there are significant differences from a management standpoint between structuring a budget according to appropri- ations and structuring it according to program forsfom ments.
