Abstract : It was the objective of the report to examine the role of the Deputy Program Manager for Logistics (DML) as perceived by various participants in the system acquisition process. The perception of each command in total was compared to the DML perception, to determine if there was a uniformity of perception among the commands. Then the perceived role of the respondents in Air Force Logistics Command (AFLC) and the Air Force Systems Command (AFSC), was examined to determine if there was a uniformity of perception within these two commands. Finally, the perception of each command was compared with the regulations and directives that define the role of the DML. This was done to see if there was a difference in perception of the deputy's role with that officially defined.
