Col. Scott Lambert has been named project manager of the Army's Logistics Modernization Project. He replaces Col. David W. Coker, who headed up LMP for six months and now assigned as the project manager for Army logistics information systems.

"There's an old saying that 'to whom much has been given, much is expected,' " said Lambert. "In my case, the Army has invested heavily in my training, education, and experience. I'm thrilled to be given the chance to pay back that great debt by serving with a fine team of professionals from so many Army and DOD organizations'helping to solve some very complex challenges facing our Army."
LMP is a component of the Single Army Logistics Enterprise. Ultimately, LMP will manage $4.5 billion in inventory with 50,000 vendors, and handle 1.6 million transactions each day. LMP replaces two of the Army's legacy logistics systems'the Commodity Command Standard System and the Standard Depot System.
Lambert holds a master's of science degree from the University of Maryland at College Park and a master's of arts degree in national security and strategic studies from the U.S. Naval War College.
