Abstract : Over the years, a diminishment of ammunition logistics expertise has occurred. The reason for this diminishment will be identified in this briefing. At present, there is no structured program that provides for the replacement of ammunition logistics personnel other than the QASAS Career Program in the quality assurance area. Existing career programs such as Supply, Maintenance, Transportation and Procurement do not meet the ammunition logistics community requirements for ammunition managers. Existing career programs do not and cannot provide a replacement for the ammunition manager at a DESCOM depot, as an example. Based on studies and reports for the past six years performed by independent groups and agencies, serious performance deficiencies across the personnel spectrum has resulted in hazardous incidents and less than acceptable performance that has a direct impact on ammunition readiness.
