United States Transportation Command's (USTRANSCOM) charter assigns responsibility and authority to procure commercial transportation services. USTRANSCOM has not received a delegation from the Secretary of Defense to execute this responsibility and authority, as Head of Agency (HA). USTRANSCOM's Transportation Component Commands (TCCs) execute procurements supporting USTRANSCOM's mission, under their Service Secretary's HA authority. USTRANSCOM as HA would delegate procurement execution authority to the TCCs. Commercial transportation services are essential in providing the Department of Defense (DoD) strategic transportation. The current procurement authority structure supporting the Defense Transportation System (DTS) is fragmented and results in overlapping authorities between the TCCs. DTS customers reimburse USTRANSCOM's working capital fund for costs incurred by USTRANSCOM and TCCs for DTS movements. Numerous audits and reviews have criticized the current procurement process. Streamlining and reengineering of the DTS procurement process would lower costs and improve efficiency. USTRANSCOM has led numerous initiatives to gain HA authority, all of which have failed. Without authority as HA USTRANSCOM can not control and streamline the DTS procurement process. As HA for the procurement of transportation services, USTRANSCOM would lower DTS costs for DoD
