Welcome to Defense Logistics Management Standards Office

DLMS Center of Excellence

Mission: Facilitate continuous enterprise integration process improvements to logistics management and operations.


Consistently explore, develop, and modify DoD logistics processes and procedures through state of the art best business practices while making most effective use of taxpayer dollars in support of the warfighter. Accelerate transformation of DoD logistics operations from obsolete information exchange processes (also known as MILS-Military Standard Logistics Systems) to variable length records made possible by Defense Logistics Management Standards (DLMS) processing. Develop, coordinate, and publish Defense Logistics Manuals (DLMs) and related publications providing guidance for emerging Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) programs. Preserve legacy operations until the DoD-enterprise has transformed their respective operations.


Deputy Secretary of Defense signed DoD Directive 8190.01E "Defense Logistics Management Standards" policy on January 9, 2015. The OSD/AT&L Functional Strategy of 2013 mandates DLMS compliance by 2019. Accountability will be enforced through the Defense Business Council's Capital Planning and Investment Control process.
