Abstract : This manual prescribes logistics management policy, responsibilities, procedures, rules, and electronic data communications standards for use in the Department of Defense for the conduct of logistics operations in the functional areas of supply, transportation, acquisition (contract administration), maintenance, and finance. These data collectively comprise the Defense Logistics Management System, or DLMS, which is a system governing logistics functional business management standards and practices rather than an automated information system. The DLMS provides an infrastructure for the participatory establishment and maintenance of procedural guidance to implement the Department's logistics policy by its user community. This manual applies to the Office of the Secretary of Defense; the Military Services (including their National Guard and Reserve components and including the Coast Guard both when it is and when it is not operating as a Military Service in the Navy); the Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff (CJCS) and Joint Staff; the United and specified Commands; the Defense Agencies; and the Defense Systems Centers (Joint Logistics Systems Center (JLSC), Defense Distribution Systems Center (DDSC), Joint Transportation CIM Center (JTCC), and DAASC), hereafter referred to collectively as the DoD Components. Additionally, the manual applies, by agreement, to other external organizational entities conducting logistics operations business with DoD including (a) non-Government organizations, both commercial and nonprofit; (b) Federal agencies of the U.S. Government other than DoD; (c) foreign national governments; and (d) international government organizations. The term Military Services, as used herein, refers to the Army, the Navy, the Air Force, and the Marine Corps. p. 70
