This study examined whether there is a less costly medical distribution structure for U.S. Central Command (USCENTCOM) that would maintain or improve performance. The assessment considered five options, evaluating the likely performance and cost implications as well as any effects on related nondistribution activities. The first option is the status quo of supporting USCENTCOM from a combination of U.S. Army Medical Materiel Center, Southwest Asia (USAMMC-SWA), located in Qatar, and U.S. Army Medical Materiel Center, Europe (USAMMCE), located in Germany. The second option is to support USCENTCOM directly from the continental United States (CONUS) prime vendor support with shipments sent through the Defense Distribution Depot Susquehanna, Pennsylvania (DDSP) containerization and consolidation point (CCP). The third option is to stock medical materiel at the nonmedical distribution depot in Kuwait instead of separately in Qatar. The fourth option would be to support USCENTCOM solely from USAMMCE. The fifth is to increase the breadth of stocks at USAMMC-SWA so that it could provide almost all direct support to USCENTCOM customers.
