These standing orders have been written to ensure adherence to fixed established logistics practices within the GDF. They have also been done to guide logistics personnel within the GDF and to establish common practices throughout the Force. This is the first step to ensuring that we have fixed, common procedures within the logistics system. These standard operating procedures combined with our creative abilities and initiatives, will assist to create an improved logistics environment within the Force, which will ensure a better supported GDF.
