Defense Logistics Management Standards (DLMS)



The DLMS is a process governing logistics functional business management standards and practices rather than an automated information system. The DLMS interprets, prescribes, and implements DoD policy in the functional areas of supply, transportation, acquisition (contract administration), maintenance, and finance. Joint committees administer the requirements of these functional areas. The DLMS, a system of governing logistics business management standards and practices, provides a functional infrastructure for the establishment and maintenance of procedural guidelines required for its user community to carry out DoD logistics policy. The DLMS is authorized by DoDD 4140.1; DLMS is prescribed by DoDM 4140.01.

The DLMS committee pages are available from the table " DLMS Committees."
