Director of Operational Logistics


DOL-3 Office of Base Operations oversees the Coast Guard's thirteen bases. Each base commander serves as the "single touchpoint" for the district commander to access the wide variety of logistics services available within the Coast Guard's mission support organization. The base commander synergizes field support delivery by integrating the product and service lines of the Coast Guard's five Logistics and Service Centers (Surface Forces Logistics Center, Shore Infrastructure Logistics Center, C4IT Service Center, Personnel Service Center, and Health Safety & Work-Life Service Center) with local subordinate commands and base departments for optimum support delivery. In a regional contingency response, the base commander supports the Coast Guard operational commander by serving as the DIST-4 (logistics) staff element, Incident Command System (ICS) logistics chief, or other appropriate logistics element.
