JOINT GROUP ON DEPOT MAINTENANCE
Joint Technology Exchange Group
I. PURPOSE: The Joint Group on Depot Maintenance (JG-DM) hereby charters the Joint Technology Exchange Group (JTEG) to improve coordination in the introduction of new or improved technology, new processes, or new equipment into Department of Defense depot maintenance activities. The JTEG will seek ways to better leverage technology improvements in depot maintenance through collaboration to support the higher DoD goals of improving effectiveness and efficiency.
II. MISSION: Provide a forum for the exchange of information on new technology, processes, and equipment developments. Collect, analyze and disseminate depot maintenance requirements for new technology, processes, and equipment. Advocate for new technology or equipment with cross-service potential to increase efficiency. Facilitate joint service technology development.
III. OBJECTIVE ACTIVTIES
A. The following outlines the activity framework and defines the type of tasks and deliverables the JTEG will produce as directed by the JG-DM:
1. Compile information on the Services’ current and future technology insertion projects and initiatives for organic depots.
2. Format the relevant technology information so it is useful throughout the depot maintenance enterpt:ise and disseminate through a website and other easily accessible means.
3. Compile information on the Services current depot maintenance technology needs and disseminate to all appropriate DoD activities (laboratories, centers, depots, headquarters).
4. Review depot maintenance requirements and capabilities across the Services and assist coordination amongst the Services to share knowledge and resources to improve efficiencies.
a. Consider technologies applicable to like or similar platforms.
b. Increase coordination to minimize technology duplication.
c. Promote emerging technologies that meet current and future joint requirements.
5. Conduct gap analysis on the Services’ technology needs and existing capabilities.
6. Publish reports to include metrics of the past year’s projects, the Services depot maintenance technology needs, and other appropriate information.
7. Be a strong advocate for projects that improve industrial processes, increase efficiencies, and/or reduce the environmental impact of depot maintenance.
B. A plan of action and milestones (POA&M) will be developed annually by the JTEG principals and submitted to the JG-DM for approval. The POA&M will identify the activities above, and any other required by the specific technology insertion project, that the JTEG plans to execute during the prescribed period, IA W the above mission. The POA&M will also detail the resources required to accomplish those activities.
C. JG-DM approval will be required prior to the allocation of resources from the Services. Any changes to the POA&M will require JG-DM approval and the appropriate reassignment of resources.
D. As a collaborative activity, individual Service participation JTEG is voluntary, as directed by the JG-DM. It is expected that participation in JTEG activities may vary based on the applicability of the technology to the Service’s requirements and the availability of resources approved by the JG-DM.
IV. GUIDANCE: The following directives and Joint Logistics Instructions are applicable to the JTEG and the Depot Maintenance Interservicing Program:
A. DoDD 4151.18, “Maintenance ofMilitary Materiel”, 31 Mar 2004
B. OPNAVINST 4790.14A, “Joint Depot Maintenance (JDM) Program” Regulation, DTD 31 Mar 1999
C. AMC-R 750-10, ,”Joint Depot Maintenance (JDM) Program” Regulation, DTD 31 Mar 1999
D. OPNAVINST 4700.7L, “Maintenance Policy for US Navy Ships”, 25 May 2010
E. OPNAV Instruction 4790.2J “The Naval Aviation Maintenance Program (NAMP)”
F. AFI 63-101, “Acquisition and Sustainment Life Cycle Management”, 3 Aug 2011
G. AR 750-1, “Army Materiel Maintenance Policy”, 20 Sep 2007
H. MCO 4790.19 “Depot Maintenance Policy”, 18 Jan 2001
A. Develop and submit for approval the Plan of Action and Milestones specifying the JTEG activity for accomplishing the stated mission.
B. Provide status reports as required on the JTEG program progress.
A. The group will coordinate, and submit reports to the JG-DM. Written reports will be addressed to the Co-Chairs, JG-DM with information copies to each JG-DM principal.
B. The JG-DM will ensure the assignment of the Service JTEG principals and resources required to support the approved POA&M.
C. JTEG principals will be provided by USAMC, NA V AIR, NA VSEA, AFMC, USMC, DLA, USCG, J4/JCS and OSD(MPP). Additionally, each Service maintenance depot should designate a primary point of contact. The JTEG will be co-chaired by an OSD (MPP) representative and an annually rotating service representative from the JTEG principals- this will mirror the JG-DM co-chair structure (with the rotating service cochair from both the JG-DM and JTEG being from the same service to facilitate easier coordination between the two groups).
D. All recommendations, plans, programs, external reports, and resource requirements must be approved by the JG-DM before execution. Additionally, any formal requests for data/information fro~ the JTEG to the Services must be approved by the JG-DM.
E. Each Service will provide the resources requir~d to satisfy the intent of the charter. The expected level of involvement from the JTEG principals is approximately two hours per week, or eight hours per month. All tasks to be performed by the JTEG principals must be annotated in the POA&M and approved by the JG-DM prior to execution. Additional tasks may include reviewing and drafting documents as well as limited analysis of information and data.
F. This charter supersedes all previous JTEG Charter documents.
