Abstract : The Electronic Equipment Information System (EEIS) is the automated system that the Coast Guard uses to maintain property records of electronic equipment and schedule the calibration of electronic test equipment. The data in EEIS are used to compute allowances of spare parts, plan maintenance programs, and budget for equipment replacement. The quality of those data directly affects the quality of the Coast Guard's logistic support for electronic equipment. Based upon interviews at more than 30 Coast Guard activities, we have identified a number of areas for improvement in EEIS. We have also identified broader logistics issues that call for a reexamination of several Coast Guard policies and business practices. This report describes those areas for improvement in EEIS and logistics issues, and presents our ideas for resolving them.
