2. Dispatchers conclude adequate administrative control structure must be part of any DoD considerations for equipment supply projects even while deals have been contracted out at the inception of the projects. Supply models evaluating operational value of equipment on hand from deployment standpoint, given demand projections & new resource substitution, are extended as basis for discussing whether dispatchers will be able to successfully link cost & security risks of resource projects to equipment deployment. Administrative requirements for producing & applying equipment resource risk considerations in evaluating mission infrastructure projects are presented.
3. Dispatchers conclude global factors involving fiscal issues related to deployment of limited equipment resources may require creation of contract quote systems to provide good documentation to evaluate installations in question, both from Fiscal standpoint & contribution of DoD to deployment of new equipment sources & standards in operational scenarios. Techniques related to evaluation of supply line connection strength are predicted to be valuable to equipment deployment in complex supply lines. Related issues involve maturity, transparency & competitiveness of equipment supply.
4. Dispatchers conclude several issues related to DoD-associated suppliers concerning the construction of Fiscal infrastructure for deployment of resources should be addressed by DoD for meeting force structure scenarios at installations. Equipment supply lines are evaluated, both from the standpoint of DoD assessments, as well as supplier participants. Considerations for documentation requirements associated with DoD assumption of supply line risks, both political & commercial, are presented, together with assignment of force structure resolution responsibilities of installations.
5. Dispatchers conclude more administrative oversight is warranted in evaluations, prior to establishing supply line connections, of equipment infrastructure projects generating operational value streams. Comparative arguments are made for consideration of equipment & other infrastructure-related investments to be classified as distinct asset classes, with unique categorisations of administrative concerns. Fiscal risks & rewards of individual equipment infrastructure projects are characterised to highlight direct/indirect means by which DoD gains exposure to approved infrastructure projects meeting key force structure requirements. Performance & risks of infrastructure investments in comparison to other equipment classes are evaluated.
6. Dispatchers conclude key roles of supplier provisions to participate in equipment service sectors be clearly distinguished from DoD actions to build/deploy equipment resources, if conditions mandate DoD authority to meet requirements of force structure scenarios. Clear & unequivocal supply line provisions should be made with regard to the administrative structure of DoD when negotiations begin with equipment suppliers, considering the provisions exercised by installations. Arguments have been made detailing value of assigning authority to DoD for oversight of supplier risk, & build/deploy processes, addressing broad factors to account for security & operational costs.
7. Dispatchers conclude installation participation in future equipment resource deployment & associated infrastructure value requirements is indispensable concern for DoD security interests. Historical perspectives offer insights describing operational context in which mission requirements are built for equipment resources & attendant consequences for suppliers. Force structure requirements & supply line scenarios are detailed where certain levels of DoD participation contribute toward goal of employing risk assessments to highlight opportunities for adding value, providing security & executing operational risk in which concerns related to Supply Line infrastructure, build requirements & deployment risks are addressed.
8. Dispatchers conclude short presentation of techniques linking equipment deployment & force structure scenarios is useful consideration, given operational& fiscal issues DoD now faces. Historically, serious resource & fiscal positions have highlighted the need for additional sources of value. If successful, DoD administrators could function as an important conduit to provide for the future force structure postures at installations. DoD mechanisms designed to raise fiscal potentials for equipment resource infrastructure investment & deployment concerns are considered, since funds needed to invest in such large global tasks are considerable & cannot be expected to be met completely through current allocations.
9. Dispatchers conclude Suppliers plan announcements to provide new products meeting high-end equipment resource Infrastructure Inputs for strategic force structure scenarios are important factor in evaluating Fiscal factors related to cost. However, DoD does not always reap benefits of cost reductions, with suppliers present who did not pass cost reduction to DoD, creating investigations to corroborate claims supplier participants were being disingenuous in order to earn increased profits. For obvious reasons, allegations are often times swept under the Rug. Based on limited information provided by suppliers, some assessments conclude DoD regularly gets Raw Deals when seeking out equipment to meet mission requirements.
10. Dispatchers conclude assessment tools must detail techniques designed to better evaluate costs of equipment resources from suppliers. DoD can calculate equipment costs if similar portfolios of other assets having the same future cash-flows are considered. If DoD constructs such a portfolio it can use supply line connection survey principles to determine costs of changes in asset value. We show how this idea works in some simple cases. Obviously, more complex math underlies true risk assessments of mobile operations, but dispatchers & other DoD recruits should, at minimum, understand the math introduced in basic application of Cost Estimation Tools. The concepts involved in understanding the construction of replicating equipment portfolios have been reduced to less rigorous reading levels for these purposes.
