Abstract : Current policy requires that Supply Support Arrangements with foreign countries under the Cooperative Logistics Program be renogotiated annually in order to specify which items are to be included on the country's Equity List and the amount of inventory investment the country will provide for each. Department of Navy has proposed that this line-by-line negotiation be eliminated and that the amount of country equity investment be determined on an aggregate financial basis. Implicit in this proposal is that Cooperative Logistics requisitions would be given the same access to U.S. stocks as requisitions from other customers and that reservation of stocks for Cooperative Logistics customers, as is presently done by the Army, would not be done. The report describes policy now followed by the Military Services and the Defense Supply Agency and, based on performance statistics, projects what would be Army support of its SSA customers if it were to adopt the Navy proposal. Alternative policies for Cooperative Logistics customers are also discussed. (Author)
