Directorate of Logistics was
established in November 1986. The Directorate is made up of a number of
departments responsible for the full range of logistic activity:-
supply, equipment support, housing and transport and movement.
The Directorate is responsible for formulating policy and Regulations

are involved in the day to day management of their respective systems
covering topics such as management of UET, provision of Transport and
Movements support, the provision and allocation of Housing, overseeing
the Force wide repair process, as well as responsibility for the
purchasing of SOP 20 items. As the managers of DEFLIS the Directorate is
introducing a world class integrated logistic system which will provide
a Force wide system giving us the capability to link unit QMs and LADs
direct to Logistic Depots and Workshops. The purchasing of stores will
become automated right from QMs and Stores Sections through to Logistic
Depots and DFP. The approvals process for items such as SOP 20 equipment
will also become automated.
Ensuring the effective operation
of the Supply Chain through the accurate use of DEFLIS and Regulations
