The Navy has awarded Alion Science and Technology a $2.6 million contract for logistics management services
to support the stand up of a Navy Strategic Mobility Office responsible for deployment planning and execution for all naval forces.

’s (NOLSC) project to stand up the mobility office. The work focuses on writing the Navy’s comprehensive Force Deployment Planning and Execution (FDP&E) policy and the Navy Tactics

Under the contract, Alion personnel will work with individual units and commands to ensure Type Unit Characteristic (TUCHA) logistics master data is accurate and inventory levels are calculated to optimal levels; serve as a liaison with the United States Transportation Command
to ensure efficient delivery of material for worldwide Naval operations; and coordinate with Joint Task Force commanders
to see to it that all deployment planning and execution is performed effectively and efficiently. The Navy Strategic Mobility Office will
be located at NOLSC headquarters
in Norfolk, Va.
