Ms. Maggie Batchelor, USTRANSCOM, provided an overview of some metrics that DTTS currently captures as well as a number of new metrics that the ICG Transportation Subgroup would like DTTS and SDDC to capture in the future. Some of the metrics that the ICG Transportation Subgroup would like DTTS and SDDC to begin capturing include:
Carrier missed RDDs
DTTS panic button usage compliance (will monitor frequency of carriers calling or texting DTTS to alert them of an incident vice initiating a panic button alert)
Carrier terminal compliance (security requirement failures and shipments exceeding authorized stay limits)
TRANSS inspection findings
Carrier failure to initiate a DTTS “offload” or “arrival” message
Carrier departs a terminal without initiating DTTS (Carrier NIS)
Carrier performance exception reports
Mr. Clay Carter, SDDC, mentioned that SDDC already captures some of the metrics for which USTRANSCOM and the Subgroup are looking. Ms. Batchelor asked Mr. Carter to send her the metrics that they are capturing.
Dr. Josephine Covino, DoD Explosives Safety Board (DDESB), reported that DDESB also requires some metrics. MAJ Fagerheim and Mr. Kim Morrison, SDDC, will work with Dr. Covino and provide the metrics that DDESB is requesting.
Ms. Batchelor also stated that the Military Services would receive the draft Business Rules governing these metrics by 16 June 2008.
