This handbook was developed and coordinated through the DoN ILA Steering Group, which includes representatives from the Deputy Assistant Secretary Of The Navy (Logistics), Director, Chief of Naval Operations (Material Readiness and Logistics), Deputy Commandant of the Marine Corps (Installations and Logistics), Hardware Systems Commands, and Naval Supply Systems Command. The DoN ILA Steering Group is responsible for the content and management of this handbook. Users of the handbook are invited to send suggested improvements to the handbook and/or the ILA process (including: changes, updates, additions and deletions) to their respective Systems Command Steering Group representative for future consideration.

This handbook provides detailed guidance to facilitate a comprehensive evaluation of the adequacy of ILS planning, management, control, execution and resources. The handbook also defines assessment criteria to be used at Initial Operational Capability (IOC) and Full Operational Capability (FOC) reviews.
