DOL transfer on track
January 24, 2012
ROCK ISLAND ARSENAL, Ill. - Plans calling for an Oct. 1 transfer of installation Directorates of Logistics from the Installation Management Command to Army Materiel Command are on track, according to Kathy Acree, co-director of Army Sustainment Command's DOL Transformation Team.
Department of the Army staff has reportedly completed their review of the documentation detailing manpower, funding and equipment being transferred, clearing the way to the Army's top official.
The next step envisions a decision memo signed by the Secretary of the Army by Feb. 17. On the heels of that decision, ASC -- as AMC's operational arm - will issue an operation order setting the course to an integrated full operational capability. The OPORD will outline operating and management procedures and provide guidance for managing the DOL Enterprise.
A major addition to ASC's capability, the DOL Enterprise includes more than 5,400 civilian employees, 100 servicemembers and some 18,000 contractors providing installation-level supply, maintenance, transportation, food service and other support to Soldiers and their Families, worldwide.
