In turn, the DOD military components are also unable to develop comprehensive plans to support DOD-wide passive RFID implementation due to the lack of an overarching DOD comprehensive strategic management plan. ... an Air Force official explained that because DLA [Defense Logistics Agency] and each of the services are developing their own plans to incorporate passive RFID into existing business processes, there is a possibility that implementation in each service could be different, leading to limited interoperability among the services. To encourage an understanding of the importance of these logistics management information programs and others like them from a global supply chain perspective, the Department of the Army now recognizes those who achieve the SOLE Certified Professional Logistician designation by adding this to officer record briefs and official military personnel folders. (see the article, "The Certified Professional Logistician Program," published in the March-April 2001 issue of Army Logistician.)
