Summary The Army's Central Issue Facilities (CIFs) do not have a formal mechanism signaling when to review inventory levels and when and whether to requisition items. Logistics leaders need a routinized inventory review process to help improve inventory management practices. The current process is based on managers' experience and expert judgment, which are not always empirically based, and because of local differences, is executed unevenly and typically infrequently. As a result, there is a perception that many CIFs have significantly more clothing and equipment inventory than required to meet soldiers' needs. The report appendices provide an in-depth description of how inventory levels should be set, including which items to order, when to order, and how much to order. They also address the question of how to identify material that is available for lateral transfer.,
