The Department of Navy (DON) has an established, department-wide program to address corrosion concerns. This program comprises the DON System Commands (NAVAIR, NAVFAC, NAVSEA, NAVSUP, MARCOR, ONR and SPAWAR) working together to address both common and platform-specific corrosion issues. The program works on mitigating corrosion through research and development efforts, aiding corrosion resistant product designs in acquisition, training and education of the fleet on preventative and corrective corrosion maintenance, and developing long-lasting corrective maintenance procedures for the system life cycle. As required by Title 10 U.S.C. ยง2228, DON has established a service Corrosion Control and Prevention Executive (CCPE), Mr. Matthew Koch, who is responsible for ensuring corrosion prevention and control are integrated into DON policy and guidance for system acquisition and production; logistics research and support analysis; equipment standardization programs; military infrastructure design, construction and maintenance; and research, development, test and evaluation programs and activities. Additionally, the DON CCPE is required to provide both an "Annual Report on Corrosion" and a "Strategic Plan for Corrosion Prevention and Control" to Congress.

This presentation will provide an overview of the DON CCPE office, ongoing efforts in corrosion policy, RDT&E, and program evaluations.
