USJFCOM Rolls Out AGATRS System to Manage Bilateral Logistics Agreements With Allies
The DoD has being going through efforts to streamline its logistics system, along with RFID implementation efforts that may one day allow logistics tracking and monitoring between allies. When that day comes, a new system being rolled out by U.S. Joint Forces Command (USJFCOM) will probably be involved. USFJCOM has begun training on AGATRS, a new Web-based tool that helps manage Acquisition Cross-Servicing Agreements (ACSA) – bi-lateral agreements between U.S. and allied nations that provide for the exchange of logistics support, supplies and services (LSSS) during exercises, training or operations.
Using AGATRS enables tracking for payment, but a barter/trade capability is also built in. See the USFJCOM release for more details.
