            Message from the Logistics & Sustainment Center Director

            Welcome to the Life Cycle Logistics Functional Area Gateway -- your “one-stop-shop” for a wide-range of interdisciplinary DAU logistics, product support, sustainment and life cycle management resources, references, tools, and training. The work you do is incredibly important, and your DAU teammates are here to support you in delivering affordable readiness to our warfighters!

            Please note that changes to certification are coming soon. In support of the September 2020 OSD Acquisition & Sustainment (A&S) memo announcing Back to Basics, DAU is improving its training to better support the needs of the life-long learner. Expect to see leaner certification training and more job focused, just-in-time learning, in the form of credentials. We are working very closely with your Functional Leaders at OSD and your service/agency to meet the training objectives you need to do your job.
