New Product Support Policy, Guidance and Tools Site Now Available
DAU is pleased to unveil a newly revamped Policy & Guidance homepage on the Logistics Community of Practice (LOG CoP). Re-titled “Product Support Policy, Guidance & Tools”, the first thing visitors to the site will notice is the new graphical interface, which provides searate groupings for product support policy, as well as links to product support guidance documents and tools. Our goal was to provide you with “one-stop shopping” that allows you to quickly access a variety of key product support resources and referencs from a single site, while at the same time, providing a repository for key products and deliverables being developed by the team implementing recommendations from the November 2009 DoD Weapon System Acquistion Reform (WSAR): Product Support Assessment report.
The site contains statutory requirements, policy, guidance documents and tools designed to enable the Life Cycle Logistician, the Product Support Manager (PSM), and other members of the Defense Acquisition Workforce develop and implement effective and efficient product support strategies that deliver optimized readiness, availability and life cycle cost outcomes to the Warfighter. Visitors to the site merely have to click on each hyperlinked bubble on the homepage graphic to access more detailed product support-related references, resources, guidance documents, tools, and policies.
Users of the site will note, however, that there are placeholders for several new guidebooks and tools which are still in development. You will see a "Coming Soon" pop-up notification when you select tools or guidebooks that are currently still in development or are not yet available.
To make access even easier, not only is the site accessible from both .mil and non-DoD domains, we have created a shortcut link to the site at https://acc.dau.mil/productsupport. Encourage you to bookmark this link and visit the site often. Like the rest of the LOG CoP itself, you will find it to be tremendously helpful capability containing useful, relevant and timely information, and which is designed to make your job even easier.
