This manual prescribes logistics management policy, responsibilities, procedures, rules, and electronic data communications standards for use in the Department of Defense (DoD), to conduct logistics operations in the functional areas of supply, acquisition (contract administration), maintenance, and finance. These data collectively comprise the Defense Logistics Management System, or DLMS, which is a process governing logistics functional business management standards and practices rather than an automated information system. The DLMS provides an infrastructure for the participatory establishment and maintenance of procedural guidance to implement the Department's logistics policy by its user community.
