SUPPLY DISCREPANCY REPORTING DoD Components migrating to the DLMS Presently, SDR process covered by two sets of publications – DLMS Volume 2, Chapter 17 – Joint Regulation DLAI et al DoDI R mandates move to DLMS procedures DoDI defines DoD issuances as: – One of 6 types of issuances: DoDD, DoDI, DoDM, DTM, AI and DoD Publication – The term “DoD Publication” shall be discontinued upon reissuance of all DoD Publications as DoDMs Inefficient to expend resources to maintain two sets of SDR publications Recommend Joint Regulation DLAI et al be rescinded – Being proposed in revision of DoDD , Supply Chain Management Policy
SUPPLY DISCREPANCY REPORTING (Comments Received Relative to Discontinuance of Joint Regulation) NAVY (NAVSEA): May make the process more efficient getting the SDR process moving forward, but may reduce input from other organizations. Would be at the behest of the DLMS manual owner giving all decision making power away. Not comfortable with the idea. Bureaucracy of joint regulation only thing forcing different Components to gain consensus on SDR processes. Seen how the PQDR process works and can imagine the same in the SDR process if no joint regulation to get all to comply. DLMSO: May have a point in efficiency; but, wide publication to all users should help maintain momentum. Disagree with the other comments. DLMSO and Components own the manual, PRC members are free to bring any experts to meetings and are responsible to ensure PDCs/ADCs are staffed internally to all subject matter experts. Do not need two publications saying the same thing.
SUPPLY DISCREAPANCY REPORTING (Comments Received Relative to Discontinuance of Joint Regulation) ARMY (TACOM): Non-concur. While the DLMS manual may be easier to maintain, it does not have the “government force of law” that regulatory guidance carries. A manual is defined as a “book that contains information and instructions about the operation of a machine or how to do something.” In other words a manual suggests, but a regulation demands compliance. DLMSO: Disagree. DoD R dictates the overall policies. Our manuals carryout those policies and provides the details of the operating processes. WHS has mandated the future elimination of “regulations” within the DoD. The term “DoD Publications” being replaced by the term “DoD Issuances.” The “NEW” DoDI , states: “DoD Issuances – One of the following 6 types of issuances published by the Department of Defense: DoDD, DoDI, DTM, AI, and DoD Publication. The term “DoD Publication” shall be discontinued upon reissuance of all DoD Publications as DoDMs.” (continued)
SUPPLY DISCREAPANCY REPORTING (Comments Received Relative to Discontinuance of Joint Regulation) DLMSO (Continued): DoDI further states that a DoD Manual is: “A DoD issuance providing detailed procedures for implementing policy established in DoDDs and DoDIs. DoDMs shall include the specific procedural information formally published as DoD Publications. All DoD Publications that are not DoDMs (i.e., catalogs, compendiums, directories, handbooks, indexes, inventories, lists, modules, pamphlets, plans, series, standards, and regulations) shall be converted into DoDMs on their next reissuance.” DoD R states: C The following DLSS procedures, codes, systems, reports, and directories and their associated DoD Manuals shall be maintained and used with the DLSS pending their complete transition into the DLMS: –C Supply Discrepancy Report (SDR) in AR /SECNAVINST A/AFJMAN /DLAI Given that DoD guidance, we must move to issuance of “DoD Manuals.” Also, in reality there are no resources to permit the luxury of issuing and maintaining two sets of publications covering the same subject and saying the same thing!
