Abstract : DoD has two deficiencies in its supply assurance policy which is used to assure supplies of military fuels, particularly during energy emergencies. First, DoD has no systematic way of assessing the severity of a disruption and second, DoD has not systematic way of deciding which policy options to put into action in response to a particular situation. This report provides a system which eliminates both deficiencies. The system provides a way of defining the severity of a disruption by aggregating all the factors which influence an energy emergency into four dimensions. After the disruption is scoped, the system provides a way of determining which policy options are suitable for the situation. This report also provides an evaluation of the adequacy of current supply assurance policy options and recommends that additional options be developed for an intermediate level disruption. (Author)
