Guard fine-tunes FLS study

A Coast Guard systems board will meet this month to discuss its review of the Fleet Logistics System project.

The Guard's Information Technology Review Board originally had planned to meet in mid-October but delayed the meeting to fine-tune its report.

'We want to take some more time to brief the guidance team to see whether they want to accept, modify or adjust the findings,' said Capt. Cliff Pearson, leader of the FLS examination team for board.

In September, he said, the board would likely recommend that the Guard take corrective action to bring the project's schedule and budget in line [GCN, Sept. 6, Page 1].

Through FLS, the Coast Guard wants to integrate logistics support for its fleet. The service has spent almost $30 million over a seven-year period on the project. Initial implementations began this summer.
