GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. This MARADMIN updates the roles, responsibilities, and processes originally outlined in Ref C for Installations and Logistics Advocacy supporting the Marine Corps Logistics Enterprise.
2. As outlined in Refs A, B, and C, the Deputy Commandant for Installations and Logistics (DC IL) is The Advocate for the Logistics Combat Element (LCE), Installations, the supporting establishment, and MAGTF Logistics. Per Ref D, The MCILR reinforced the mandate to advocate for people, programs, Installations and logistics capabilities across all elements of the MAGTF and supporting establishment. Since the inception of IL Advocacy in 2013, training, education, innovation, and professional development remained the focus to build a cadre of installations experts, MAGTF Logisticians, and the Installation and Logistics Capabilities needed to sustain and support MAGTF warfighting across the full spectrum of military operations. OPFOR recommendations and AARS during this period identified the need to make adjustments to the IL Advocacy construct and process to more effectively gather bottom-up requirements along with top-down guidance and provide better Installations and Logistics input to meet the myriad of
milestones for the annual Program Objective Memorandum (POM) submission.
3. Advocacy organization update.
3.a. Installations and Logistics Board (ILB). The ILB will continue as the senior IL Advocacy governance forum, chaired by the Deputy Commandant for Installations and Logistics. The ILB will meet semi-annually, once in conjunction with the Ground Logistics Awards Dinner in the spring, and a second time in conjunction with the General Officer Symposium in SEP-OCT of each year. The ILB will focus on decisions and guidance necessary to ensure appropriate POM input is coordinated to meet DC IL priorities and tasks. ILB responsibilities and membership are outlined in the IL Advocacy Charter (Ref B).
3.b. MAGTF Logistics Board (MLB). The MLB will be chaired by the Assistant Deputy Commandant for Installations and Logistics (LP) and will meet during the LOG COAG described in 3.c. MLB responsibilities and membership outlined in Ref B will be updated to reflect the new alignment.
3.c. Logistics consolidated Operational Advisory Group (LOG COAG). The LOG COAG, chartered to review and prioritize critical enterprise level issues identified and developed by the Logistics Operational Advisory Groups (OAGS), will continue as the operational logistics decision-making body in the IL Advocacy process. The LOG COAG is chaired by the Assistant Deputy Commandant for Installations and Logistics (LP) and will meet annually in the National Capital Region during the Apr-May timeframe. The LOG COAG will encompass an entire week inclusive of enterprise level-setting briefs, individual Logistics OAG working group meetings, and a council of Colonels review of issues, culminating with a General Officer decision brief to the MLB. COAG roles, responsibilities and membership will be reflected in an update of Ref B.
3.d. Logistics Operational Advisory Groups (OAGS). Based on the results of the 2016 ILB, IL Advocacy process reviews, and quad MLG recommendations, Logistics OAG alignment, leadership, and processes have been modified as follows. Logistics OAGS will now be co-led by OPFOR (MLG) and HQMC IL o6/gs-15 leaders. This reinforces a bottom-up/top-down approach necessary for identifying and addressing Enterprise LCE and Ground Logistics focus areas identified in paragraph 2. As outlined in paragraph 3.c., OAGs will convene annually as a consolidated OAG during a single, week-long, event in the National Capital Region. OAGs may continue any required working groups as desired throughout the year to focus on key or complex issues. These efforts will remain under the purview and scheduled at the discretion of the individual OAG co-leads, but will not replace OAG participation during the COAG. The updated logistics OAG alignment and co-leads are:
3.d.1. Sustainment Readiness OAG (incorporating Supply and Maint): 2d MLG/IL (LPC)
3.d.2. Services OAG (incorporating Operational Contract Support): 3d MLG/IL (LPC)
3.d.3. Engineer Support Battalion (ESB) OAG: IL (LPE)
3.d.4. Logistics Training and Education OAG: MCLOG/IL (LPC)
3.d.5. Health Services OAG: 1st MLG/IL (LPO)/TMO
3.d.6. Logistics it OAG (incorporating c2 for Log, GCSS-MC): 2D MLG/IL (LPV)
3.d.7. Transportation and Distribution OAG: 1ST MLG/IL (LPD)
3.d.8. Aviation Ground Support (AGS) OAG: APX/IL (LPO)
3.e. Marine Installations Board (MIB). The MIB is the overarching IL advocacy governance forum in support of Marine Corps bases and stations and is chaired by the Commander, MCICOM/Director LF Division (COMMCICOM). MIB membership is outlined in Ref G.
3.f. Installations Advisory Groups (IAGS). The IAGS consist of Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) from their respective functional areas and communities. The IAGs are independently chartered by COMMCICOM and consider functionally focused issues and make recommendations to the MIB affecting all Marine Corps Installations, and ultimately the Operating Forces. IAG leads (identified in Ref G) create subordinate working groups and planning teams as necessary to advocate for specific issues. Ref G established the following IAGS:
3.f.1. Workforce Management IAG (WMIAG)
3.f.2. Installation Protection Capability Portfolio Review Board/Advisory Group (IPCPRB)
3.f.3. Aviation Operations IAG (AOIAG)
3.f.4. Government and External Affairs IAG (GEAIAG)
3.F.5. Logistics Services IAG (LSIAG)
3.F.6. Information Technology IAG (ITIAG)
3.F.7. Facilities Operational Advisory Group (FOAG)
3.F.8. Safety IAG (SIAG)
3.F.9. Marine Corps Community Services IAG (MCCSIAG)
4. IL ADVOCACY, LOG COAG and Individual OAG/IAG Charters will be reviewed annually and updated when necessary.
5. The Logistics Vision and Strategy Branch (LPV) within LP Division will continue as the IL Advocacy Secretariat, providing support to assist each of the Ground Logistics OAGS. MCICOM g-3/5/7 will continue as the Advocacy Secretariat in support of the MIB and its subordinate IAGS. The IL Advocacy Secretariat will maintain the Advocacy SharePoint site at https:(slash)(slash)eis.usmc.mil/sites/hqmclp/logisticsadvocacy/sitepages/home.aspx. MCEITS accounts must be established for each individual assigned to IAGS and OAGS and can be requested through normal support channels.
6. Supporting commands. Key representatives to participate on the MLB, MIB, LOG COAG, OAGS, and IAGS may be requested as appropriate from the following commands, staffs and organizations.
6.a. Commander, Marine Corps Forces Pacific
6.b. Commander, Marine Corps Forces Command
6.c. Commander, Marine Corps Forces Central Command
6.d. Commander, Marine Forces Reserve

6.t. Marine Corps Systems Command.
6.u. Naval Facilities Engineering command.
6.v. Medical Officer of the Marine Corps.
7. logistics occupational field sponsors and community of interest personnel will continue to provide the required functional area expertise and recommendations to OAGs and IAGs as required to ensure tables of organization, tables of equipment, training and readiness manuals, Marine Corps Logistics doctrine, and Marine Corps Logistics Policy issues are fully integrated into the IL Advocacy Process.
8. Communications. The IL Advocacy Secretariat will publish periodic IL advocacy news grams to ALCON and maintain the IL advocacy SharePoint site. Co-leads of the logistics OAGs and IAGs will publish action items and issues to ALCON as required.
9. The IL advocacy process must fully support the Marine Corps Operating Concept (MOC) and develop the required capabilities for sustaining future MAGTF Forces that are lighter and more lethal, fighting across all five domains on a fully contested and distributed battlefield. To provide the operational reach needed by future MAGTF Commanders, we must focus on innovative Installations and Logistics capabilities, advance the hybrid logistics concept, and reduce demand for liquids and energy. IL advocacy provides a fully functional bottom-up and top-down approach to focus Marine Corps Installations and Logistics for the future, and ensure that Marine Logistics and Logisticians remain relevant to warfighting requirements.
10. This MARADMIN supersedes ref c. MARADMIN 370/13 will be cancelled via SEPCOR.
