The Marine Corps has issued an important new document of interest entitled “US Marine Corps Installations and Logistics 2030 (I&L2030), dated February 2023.

The new document is designed to convey “… the way ahead for our Marine Corps Installations and Logistics Enterprise (MCILE) — the system of installations, organizations, and capabilities that enables force generation, power projection, employment, and sustainment of ready Marine forces…It is based on iterative planning and experimentation from our campaign of learning, and therefore, will be updated on an annual basis. In recent years, we have identified logistics as the “pacing function” for operations…This document serves as the primary reference for how we will logistically support the future force. It captures the concepts, capabilities, and tasks we need to develop and execute to support naval expeditionary forces in the future operating environment. It directs change across much of the doctrine, organization, training/education, materiel, leadership/communications synchronization, personnel, and facilities (DOTMLPF) spectrum; change that will begin with the following objectives:

  • Create Global Logistics Awareness
  • Diversify Distribution
  • Improve Sustainment
  • Make the Installations Ready for a Contested Environment
  • Develop Logistics Professionals for the 21st Century

While our current approach — informed by decades of experience — worked well in the past, it is insufficient to meet the demands of the future operating environment, particularly when contested across all domains….”

From a workforce perspective, the document outlines how the USMC will “engage talent management initiatives to bring different perspectives and add depth to the installations and logistics community” as well as “…increasing training and education opportunities for our logistics community to better posture our Marine and civilian workforce to succeed against the multidomain challenges of the future operating environment.” This includes a cfocus on “...leveraging joint training, commercial training, and web-based educational platforms to help our personnel become more fluent in joint logistics and better skilled at integrating the logistical capabilities of other services, agencies, allies and partners, and functional combatant commands.” The document also commits to “…improve and expand the competencies of all civilian employees, from entry level to senior executive.”

As your defense acquisition workforce professional development partners, your DAU life cycle logistics, product support and sustainment faculty teammates stand ready to support and assist our US Marine Corps colleagues in this endeavor.
