CORROSION POLICY AND OVERSIGHT OFFICE (CPO)
Overview of the Corrosion Policy and Oversight Office:
The purpose of this office is to reduce the total lifecycle costs of corrosion, increase availability and improve safety within the DoD. The office actively brings together the broader corrosion community, including managers, logistics supporters, engineers, and scientists, with maintainers to facilitate stakeholder communication. Acquisition and sustainment processes require maximum communication and cooperation to have an effect on reducing total life cycle costs due to corrosion. This community includes active participation from supporters of both weapon systems and facilities. These aforementioned objectives are being achieved and extend beyond the DoD to include improvements for FHWA, NASA, Industry, and Allied Nations.
