Abstract : To insure against uneconomic repair, the Army establishes a Maintenance Expenditure Limit (MEL) for reparable items. Repair or overhaul at a cost exceeding the MEL cannot be performed unless a waiver is granted. A recent DOD Inspector General audit recommended the Army raise its MEL for depot reparables to 100% of replacement price and that these estimated replacement prices be updated annually. This report discusses these and other MEL related issues. The material in this Research Note was developed in support of the Depot Repair Program briefing of the DARCOM Deputy Commander for Resources and Management Task Group, DRCDRM-TG. (Author)
