Abstract : The Air Force has not resolved all problems since the implementation of stock funding for depot level reparables (DLRs). This paper explores one of those problem areas that directly impacts depot maintenance. The depots are impacted because of legitimate actions taken by base maintenance and supply activities. Air Force depots currently are paying to replace DLRs missing from larger DLRs which were returned to the depots by base activities. The paper discusses how this problem is caused by a broken process which was not corrected when the Air Force implemented stock funding for DLRs. Further potential solutions for this problem are provided. This problem can and should be resolved as quickly as possible.
