Brig Gen. Giovanni K. Tuck, USAF:
We have a global enterprise supplying around 105 million barrels of fuel a year, and between 52 to 55 million barrels of inventory on hand at any given time throughout the world – but we can’t do it by ourselves. We absolutely need partnerships to get this done.
You will see more in this edition about the scope of our partnerships than I can credit here, but we partner with a surprising number of groups, agencies and services outside of our organization to do some outstanding work. For example, we have ties with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Department of Energy, the State Department and many other federal agencies. Those relationships are critical, as are our service and joint relationships that we have with the combatant commanders, or at the policy level with the Office of Secretary of Defense or the Acquisition, Technology and Logistics office.
