CPAC Documentation

  • Policy - This link is provided as a ready reference to Marine Corps Order applicable to the Corrosion Prevention and Control (CPAC) Program.
  • Technical Manuals - The technical manuals link provides the individual user quick access to the current Corrosion Prevention and Control technical manuals.
  • Reports - The reports page provides a listing of available reports related to Corrosion Prevention and Control. The information in the reports is valuable and could be beneficial if used to improve unit Corrosion Prevention and Control Programs. Copies of the listed reports can be obtained if requested through the email link provided CPAC.
  • CPAC Planning Guidebook - This document provides acquisition program managers with guidance in developing and implementing a Corrosion Prevention and Control Program for DoD weapon systems and infrastructure, and corrosion related technical aspects that should be addressed for a viable design.
  • THE ANNUAL COST OF CORROSION FOR MARINE CORPS GROUND VEHICLES 2007-2008 UPDATE - To perform its mission of corrosion prevention and mitigation, fulfill congressional requirements, and respond to Government Accountability Office (GAO) recommendations, the USD(AT&L) established the Corrosion Prevention and Control Integrated Product Team (CPC IPT), a cross-functional team of personnel from all the military services and representatives from private industry. In response to a GAO recommendation to "develop standardized methodologies for collecting and analyzing corrosion cost, readiness, and safety data the CPC IPT created a standard method to estimate the cost of corrosion for DoD's military equipment and infrastructure. This report presents the results of the Marine Corps ground vehicle portion of the cost-of-corrosion study for 2009-2010.

    This study is an update of a similar effort that was performed in 2006, which employed the same method with one significant improvement to the way field-level maintenance labor costs were measured. Using this more accurate method, the study recomputed the FY2005 costs and used them as the new measurement baseline. Based on the updated data, the study found that corrosion costs for Marine Corps ground vehicles dropped from $545 million in FY2005 to $460 million in FY2008, a decrease of $85 million. The USMC CPAC Program Office recognizes that the Corrosion Prevention and Control Program efforts across the Marine Corps are contributing factors in the cost reduction reported in this report, and an enabler in improving readiness and operational availability of USMC ground equipment.

  • CPAC MISSION ENGINEERING ANALYSIS- This analysis documents the CPAC Program's current baseline. The current baseline comprised of several Mission Engineering (ME) products to include data Inventories, the CPAC Community Model (CM), operational Multi-dimensional Process Decompositions (MPDs) and the Enterprise Segment Activity Roadmap (ESAR). The intent is to communicate the current state and scope of the CPAC Program in order to increase awareness of the Program's breadth, depth, and criticality to the USMC mission. A portion of this analysis captures observations and recommendations to highlight improvement opportunities in the context of mission processes. Program managers may use these observations and recommendations to highlight improvement opportunities that help to promulgate greater effectiveness and efficiencies across the Marine Corps. Copy of this analysis can be obtained if requested through the email link provided CPAC.
