Admiral Stan Arthur Award Winners

Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Fleet Readiness and Logistics, VADM Dixon R. Smith, recently announced the winners of the 2017 Admiral Stan Arthur Awards highlighting military and civilian logisticians who epitomize excellence in logistics planning and execution. The 2017 Logistics Team of the Year is the Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) Fleet Logistics Center (FLC) Jacksonville's Enterprise Logistics Response Team (ELRT). 

Logistics Team of the Year

Responding to the unique challenges of humanitarian assistance/disaster relief missions for Hurricanes Irma and Maria, NAVSUP FLC Jacksonville activated the first operational employment of its ELRT to ensure seamless logistics support to military services, federal/state/local agencies and non-governmental organizations supporting military installation recovery and Defense Support to Civil Authorities (DSCA) missions. Recognizing the need to surge the logistics capacity within the region, NAVSUP activated the ELRT prior to the hurricanes making landfall; NAVSUP FLC Jacksonville dispersed the team across the region the day after the hurricane left the area. Leveraging the capabilities of the ELRT, NAVSUP FLC Jacksonville supported increased Fleet operations, while also sourcing/delivering provisions, water and supplies to relieve suffering in hurricane impacted communities. Across the region, the ELRT's impact in immediately supporting base installation recovery efforts and sustaining increased recovery effort requirements further proved the critical role NAVSUP provides in supporting contingency and DSCA operations.

Team members from across the NAVSUP enterprise include: Capt. Matthew Ott, Cmdr. Stuart Day, Lt. Cmdr. Alejandra Holch, Lt. Jessica Chamberlain, Robert Brunson, Edwin Baldoria, Lt. Cmdr. Jason Morgan, Lt. Cmdr. Charles McCandless, LSC Kristian Fabian, LSC Juan Alvergue, LSC Genedine Cabrera, LSCS Marvin Foster, Lt. John Waurio, LS1 James Wade, LS1 Geronimo Jimenez, LS1 Deandra Valdes, LS1 Nikko Casten, LS1 Marina Johnson, LS1 Gerardo Chan, LS1 Sebastine Agbo, LS1 Steven Morones, LS1 Ramon Monge, LS2 Christopher Edmondson, LS2 Darien Bonner, LS2 Steven Zybert, LS2 Melissa Wilcoxon, LS2 Christopher Grijalva, LS2 Joseph Clugston, LS2 Regina Leuty, LS3 Adam Icard, LSSN Jeannette Rangel.

Please join me in congratulating the NAVSUP FLC Jacksonville ELRT on their exceptional accomplishments!

Farewell

RADM Michelle C. Skubic will relieve me as Commander, Naval Supply Systems Command and 47th Chief of Supply Corps on July 13, 2018. I am confident in her leadership, abilities, experience and readiness to guide NAVSUP, the Supply Corps, and our entire supply community honorably.  She understands how far we have come in the past 223 years, as well as what still needs to be done to continue to excel in our service to our great Navy. I know that you will give her the same high level of support, dedication, and energy you have given me.

The experience of the past five years has been a rare privilege and honor. Every day, we tackled challenges together, reliably providing the materials and services our Warfighters need, overcoming hurdles with tailored solutions. I found great satisfaction in the opportunities to work with dedicated, smart and patriotic men and women serving around the world, to reach new goals together, and to see progress and positive change. Our mettle has been tested, and we have persevered by the actions and resiliency of a supply community that refused to offer anything short of its best to our Navy and Nation.

I thank you, the members of our Navy's great supply community, and am proud of your accomplishments. You demonstrated dedication and determination in our work. Moreover, you recognized the importance of our work, and that every effort plays a role in accomplishing our Nation's military missions.  

You are ready to support and supply our customers as we, together, adapt to a faster-paced, more complex, and increasingly competitive security environment. The changes you are implementing today will continue to improve our processes, to better serve our Warfighter customers, to win tonight and be ready tomorrow.

It has been an honor and privilege to serve as your Commander, NAVSUP and Chief of Supply Corps. Thank you.

LGBT Pride Month

Throughout the month of June, the Navy and NAVSUP join the nation in observing Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Pride Month.

During LGBT Pride Month and throughout the year, NAVSUP is committed to
fostering an actively inclusive environment that values the diversity of our workforce, and recognizes that service members and civilians achieve optimal performance when each and every member of One Navy Team is treated with dignity and respect.

Diversity is one of our nation's, and Navy's, greatest strengths, and we are committed to fostering an inclusive environment.  In order to win tonight and be ready tomorrow, our NAVSUP family needs the right men and women in the right places.  It's important for us to continue to foster a diverse environment in which innovation thrives and good ideas can take shape.

In support of our mission to provide supplies, services, and quality-of-life support to the Navy and Joint Warfighter, we are committed to building and maintaining a workforce comprised of the most capable and qualified Sailors and civilians regardless of ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, class or background.

First established by presidential proclamation in 2000, LGBT Pride Month
reminds us of the importance of valuing the dignity of others regardless of
race, gender, sexual orientation, or creed.  I invite you to spend time this month to celebrate our nation's and Navy's rich diversity and renew our enduring commitment to respecting and upholding the dignity of all.

NAVSUP Reform Program is Underway

Our Reform Program, improving how we do business and support our customers, is well underway. As promised, here is an update on our program implementation, and what to expect as we reform to meet our Navy and Joint warfighters' changing needs to adapt to a faster-paced, more complex, and increasingly competitive security environment.

We have stood up a Reform Management Office to coordinate Enterprise actions, which are organized around five value pillars and four enabling efforts. Each element is led by one of NAVSUP's senior leaders, with teams focused on implementing key aspects of the Reform Program. While some teams have started their work already, others will kick off in the next few months, with their efforts being executed over the next 18 months.

The VALUE PILLARS are the core efforts to improve the way we work:

RESPONSIVE CONTRACTING: Reduce administrative lead time and material costs by correcting process inefficiencies, increasing standardization, and developing additional cost-estimation capabilities to get needed parts on the shelf faster.

CUSTOMER PRESENCE: Improve communication, visibility, and coordination with onsite Supply Corps officers, further aligning our processes with our customers and enhancing our customer-centric culture. 

FORECASTING: Improve forecasting accuracy and reduce delivery time by developing advanced tools, integrating forward-looking data, and utilizing planned demand to better plan spares buys.

STRATEGIC SUPPLIER MANAGEMENT: Improve prices and repair options by expanding the supply base for suppliers with top degrader parts and parts with no suppliers. 

INTEGRATED LOGISTICS: Reduce response and coordination time by integrating the end-to-end supply chain process into a comprehensive and tailored solution.

The ENABLERS are efforts that will facilitate and amplify the core pillars' impact:

DRIVING REFORM: Support NAVSUP's change management and stakeholder communication inside and outside the organization.

DIGITAL ACCELERATOR: Implement improved data analytics and new digital technology throughout programs and processing to better exploit the mountains of data we collect every day, and garner insights into the way our customers behave.

AUDIT: Enable full audit compliance by providing a single point of accountability and clarifying processes.

ENABLE NEW ERA WORKFORCE: Improve training and knowledge management as NAVSUP recruits, develops, trains, and retains the next generation of leaders. 

While the Reform Program rollout has primarily focused on NAVSUP HQ and NAVSUP WSS, commands across the NAVSUP enterprise have already put thought into the kinds of reforms they want to undertake. As we progress, more and more people will be involved and help us succeed. 

We have established a Reform Program page on MyNAVSUP to provide information on these initiatives and provide answer for your questions at https://my.navsup.navy.mil/apps/ops$mynavsup.navsup_reform

If you're not directly involved yet, you still have a role to play as we look for innovative ways to improve business in all areas. Good ideas come from everywhere, and yours are always welcome through your team and through the MyNAVSUP "Ideas" portal at https://my.navsup.navy.mil/apps/ops$mynavsup.ideas.

Thank you for your support. I will continue to update you as our Reform Program continues to develop.
