Abstract
The Marine Corps published Marine Corps Order 4400.201, Financial Liability Investigation of Property Loss (FLIPL), in 2018 to allow commanders the opportunity to investigate the loss, damage, and destruction of government property and hold individual(s) accountable. The First Marine Expeditionary Force (I MEF) published the Consolidated Storage Program (CSP) procedures order to implement Marine Corps Order 4400.201 and is the only MEF to have implemented such order. The purpose of this research is to evaluate the I MEF CSP order against the FLIPL, analyzing its process by utilizing Lean Six Sigma methodologies to identify aspects that are non-value-added, discuss why they create inefficiencies, and provide potential recommended changes to improve accountability. The study revealed that before the CSP order was published, the MEF incurred millions of dollars in equipment losses. Once the CSP order was published and disseminated to I MEF units, equipment accountability became a priority for commanders as their organization would be held financially liable for future lost, damaged, or destroyed Unit Issue Facility (UIF) equipment. The total amount of losses went from $7 million in FY17 to a little over $300,000 in FY21, proving the I MEF CSP order to be effective. Recommendations identify the need to reduce the review time of the DD 200 FLIPL.
