DoD Inspector General (IG) determined that the case involving the smuggler was contracted by the Joint Contract Command - Iraq & Afghanistan (JCC – I&A) – Sept 07
JS J4 asked COCOMs for feedback on their current screening process – Sept 07
Mr. Schutz also reviewed a number of future potential actions that will enhance the carrier screening process. They include:
COCOMs without approved AA&E carrier lists will establish them
All approved AA&E carrier lists will be accessible via a central website
SDDC plans to add an EPLS subcontractor screening requirement to the Universal Services Contract (USC) USC 06
OSD (TP) will work with other federal agencies to ensure consistent screening throughout the federal government
DFARS case will be created to require contractors and all tier subcontractors to use only approved AA&E carriers
OGC to provide legal opinion on establishing a worldwide pre-approval process
USTRANSCOM considering other less workload intensive alternatives
Mr. Schutz highlighted the last two actions since they are new since the last ICG meeting.
Mr. Oliver Bell, USMC, asked if SDDC is endorsing any of the commercial systems that are being used to vet carriers. SDDC has considered them. Mr. Earhart stated that OUSD (I) has evaluated many commercial systems and found that they have limitations. Policy provides the guidance, and if a vendor system can meet the guidance, it can be used by U.S. Government. MAJ Fagerheim added that currently, no vendor systems have been endorsed.

Mr. Clay Carter, SDDC, provided an update on the SDDC/DTTS trailer tracking initiative. SDDC continues to evaluate Trailer Tracking Service (TTS) as an accessorial service in SDDC’s Unified Pub MFTRP1C.
