Abstract : The Department of Defense defines core as the capability maintained within organic defense depots to meet readiness and sustainability requirements of the weapon systems that Support the JCS contingency scenario(s). Even though the Services perceive DoD policy on Depot Maintenance Core Capability to be inconsistent; each Service's required core capability (which should be reasonably constant) has changed numerous times; GAO has been critical of DoD policies; and the CINCs have negligible input, management of this process and policy is better served at the DoD level.
