New Army "Type Classification, Materiel Release, Fielding and Transfer" Regulation
For our colleagues in the Army life cycle logistics community, in case you had not already seen it, the Army issued a newly updated version of Army Regulation 700–142 “Type Classification, Materiel Release, Fielding, and Transfer” on June 2, 2015. The changes contained in this major revision to this Army policy include:
· Adds strategic satellite communications systems (table 1-1).
· Adds the Army Enterprise System Integration Program as the system to coordinate nonstandard line item numbers (para 2-14g).
· Adds policy on using risk management for materiel fielded by another Service or Agency (para 4-2e).
· Revises the urgent materiel release policy to allow the Deputy Chief of Staff, G-3/5/7 to approve the missions that an urgent materiel release can support (para 4-10).
