Abstract
The United States Marine Corps spends 32 million dollars annually for the initial provisioning support of new weapon systems. This support is vital to the performance of new equipment during the initial period of operation. This thesis contains a summary of the current responsibilities and procedures for determining initial support in the Marine Corps. It also addresses such issues as level of repair analysis, provisioning technical documentation, phased provisioning, contractor provided initial support, and combat essentiality. Recommendations are made for additional investigation in the following areas; the augmentation of provisioning project teams, the formation of an ad hoc provisioning review board, the scheduling of provisioning review conferences, the elimination of excess stocks, and the contracting out of initial support.
