Overview • Defense Logistics Manuals (DLMs) • Status Update • Combining DLSS and DLMS manuals • Background • Status Update
Defense Logistics Manuals (DLMs) Status • DODI 4140.01 – 14 December 2011 • Designates publication of the DLSS/DLMS manuals as Defense Logistics Manual (DLMs) • DLSS (aka MILS) identified for conversion to DLMs =MILSTRIP, MILSTRAP, and DAAS manual • MILSBILLS, DODAAD and MAPAAD manuals will be incorporated into the DLMS DLM, Vol 6 • Actions resulting from approved DODI: • DLSS/DLMS manuals will be sent to publications as DLMs: • DLMs will incorporate numerous ADCs not yet published • DLM format is basically the same as current DLSS/DLMS manuals • Publications turnaround time is unknown, but DODI requires publication within 180 days of the instructions publication (180 Days is 11 June 2012) • DLMs will be published on the DLA Logistics Management Standards website once approved/signed by the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Supply Chain Integration (DASD(SCI))
Combining DLSS and DLMS Manuals • Background: • DLSS/DLMS procedures are covered by multiple sets of manuals • DoD 4140.1-R mandates move to DLMS procedures • DoD Components are migrating to the DLMS • Maintaining two sets of publications, which contain essentially the same information for the different formats, is resource intensive, duplicative in nature, and no longer practical • DLA Logistics Standards Management is in the process of combining DLSS manuals with DLMS manual
Combining DLSS and DLMS Manuals (Cont’d) • Combined DLSS/DLMS Manual: • Will maintain visibility of DLSS peculiar terminology where applicable • Effort will be made to better align DLMS Volume 2 chapter structure to that of the present DLSS (MILSTRIP/ MILSTRAP)chapter structure • Once combined, appendices covering DLSS codes and formats will be removed from manuals and reside on the DLMSO website (location TBD-probably DLM pages and DS page) • Status of combining DLSS with DLMS: • DoD 4000.25-1-M MILSTRIP combining w/DLMS Vol 2 Supply Stds & Procedure • Effort has begun • DoD 4000.25-2-M MILSTRAP combining w/DLMS Vol 2 Supply Stds & Procedure • Effort underway • DoD 4000.25-6-M DODAAD Manual has been moved into DLMS Vol 6, Chapter 2 (see ADC 251) • DoD 4000.25-7-M MILSBILLS Manual has been moved into DLMS Vol 4 Finance (see ADC 469) • DoD 4000.25-8-M MAPAD Manual has been moved into DLMS Vol 6, Chapter 3 (see ADC 336) • DLAI 4140.55, AR 735-11-2 SECNAVINST 4355.18A, AFJMAN 23-215, Reporting of Supply Discrepancies – moved into DLMS Vol 2, Chapter 17
