The Department of Navy and U.S. Marine Corps will embrace a culture of shared responsibility that recognizes the critical role of small businesses in advancing our naval capability and the strength of our nation’s economy and security by seeking qualified small businesses at the earliest stage of acquisition planning.
Marine Corps Installation & Logistics support the Corps' ability to generate, train and sustain expeditionary crisis responses forces, ready to operate across the range of military operations, whether from home station, forward-based or forward deployed.
Installations and Logistics Department shapes logistics plans and policies to sustain excellence in warfighting. The focus of effort is to increase Marine Air Ground Task Force lethality by providing superior support through modernizing logistics processes, implementing proven technology and best practices, developing standards of performance, and fully integrating the supporting establishment as the fifth element of the Marine Air Ground Task Force. USMC I&L is a dynamic advocacy that provides training, advice, guidance, and innovative strategies ensuring quality solutions for Navy and Marine Corps acquisition teams and to maximize opportunities for small businesses.
