in extending the life of our equipment, this is especially true for the Marine Corps, which operates in harsh environments that quickly degrade its gear. While mandated programs at each echelon of maintenance are technically proficient, the Depot-level program, to include transportation, in use by IMEF appears to be inefficient. The objective of this thesis research was to analyzethe present program used to meet the Depot-level requirements for the West coast and see if gives the Corps the Best Value available. Best Value in this case considers both the effect on equipment readiness and overall cost. The present program to protect the assets is efficient and mostly cost effective, yet the transportation procedures are inefficient and not cost effective. This unnecessarily degrades readiness for the war fighter. It is proposed that implementing both the use of organic transportation assets and utilizing outsourcing will greatly improve Readiness levels to IMEF and lower overall program costs.
