IAM Code of Ethics
What is the IAM Code of Ethics?
1. The Code outlines generally accepted practices and professional
standards.
2. IAM members are expected to adhere to these when conducting
business with each other and their clients.
3. When established in 2006, no enforcement guidelines were
developed.
4. IAM Leadership and Staff realized that policies were needed to
adjudicate on ethics complaints alleged against members.
5. Code of Ethics Enforcement Procedures have been created and
an Ethics Council composed of member volunteers will be
implemented to address this gap.

Charles White
Director of Government & Military Relations Report
Critical Issues facing the IAM membership:
I)
Business Case Analysis for the possible Outsourcing of the DOD
Personal Property Program:
--
IAM staff have been closely monitoring this possibility for years.
We followed every step of the contracting process used to
outsource DOD freight moving from their freight depots – the
Defense Transportation Coordination Initiative (DTCI)
--
Early this year we started to see signals that HHGs were coming
under the same microscope.
--
Initial meeting with OSD to discuss the BCA held in late June,
2011
--
BCA contractor named in mid-August, 2011 – Logistics
Management Institute (LMI)
--
IAM staff initial meeting with LMI September 8, 2011
Governing Membership Meeting
Director of Government & Military Relations Report
II) SDDC Program Management Review (PMR)
--
Initially labeled the “Program Efficiency Review”
--
Looking at ways to improve, streamline and find further
efficiencies for DP3
--
Items being reviewed
-- Implementation of CFAC in the Domestic Market
-- Agent Declaration, interim step in DPS coming - Agent I.D.
-- Redefining TSP
-- How to implement an Open Season without a further
proliferation of TSP in both the Domestic and Int’l Markets
-- Minimum number of CSS to be considered statistically
valid
-- SFR for Alaska
Governing Membership Meeting
Director of Government & Military Relations Report
III) 2011 Peak Season
--
SDDC Peak Season “Hotwash”
--
SDDC focused on CAPACITY while industry appears to be
focused on Traffic Distribution
--
Rule Changes and New Rules implemented for 2011 Peak Season
-- Unlimited Refusals – vs. Enhanced Blackout Functionality
-- Code 2 and approval to use Portable Moving & Storage
Containers (PMSC)
-- Increased use of SIT @ Origin
-- Elimination of the 70% rule
--
DPS stability is major issue, especially during Peak Season –
DOD believes that “Click Count” changes played a major role.
-- What does Peak Season 2012 hold?????

IV) Joint Regionalization
--
OSD initiative to be completed by 2015/16 but on FAST TRACK!
--
7 CONUS JPPSOs – JPPSO-COS, JPPSO-NE, JPPSO-SAT, Ft.
Lewis, JPPSO-WA, Jacksonville & San Diego
--
OCONUS – Japan (Yokosuka), Korea (Yongsan), Europe (WKAS),
JPPSO-HI and a few other smaller more isolated booking offices.
--
BCA and the PMR will not have ANY effect on Regionalization
continuing to move forward.
V) DPS
--
New contract is coming out for bid. There is a possibility of a new
contractor being named
--
New Third Party Payment System (TPPS) contract also out
--
DPS Release 1.4.07 currently planned for September 30, 2011

Functionality, the able to identify an origin agent in the “free text”
field and the member’s DOB info needed for the enhanced 10+2
requirements
--
Phase III requirements are being written but there is still some
disagreement within DOD as to whether DPM will be included.
