Abstract : This report documents the findings of an analysis of the potential risks and benefits of consolidating management of all DoD inventory control points under the Defense Logistics Agency. The analysis was done to support a review directed by the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 1996. The analysis found a potential for substantial savings and potential risks to the current relationship between management of weapon systems and the management of secondary-item materiel and to the ability of inventory control points to tailor customer support. The findings of the analysis were included in a DoD report to Congress.
