tion of JDPAC deputy director is exciting and challenging, it is not unique or even unusual at USTRANSCOM.
In fact, Colonel Cusimano isn't just keeping a seat warm for the active component; the JDPAC deputy director position is a reserve component position that will rotate among the services.
The QLA sponsor, OUSD/AT&L, commissioned the JDPAC team to evaluate the concept by focusing on surface transportation opportunities for the Hawaiian island of Oahu.
During phase three, the JDPAC QLA team worked with the JSM Working Group to develop a range of viable solution alternatives and criteria that stakeholders would use to evaluate the solutions.
During the course of the analysis, the JDPAC team evaluated the existing transportation network and business rules and the proposed alternative solutions.
After the analysis of efficiencies, costs, and other stakeholder evaluation criteria such as visibility and surge responsiveness, the JDPAC recommended that USPACOM centrally manage joint inter-base requirements through the implementation of a JSM with a distribution hub at or near the Defense Distribution Center at Pearl Harbor (DDPH).
