 Chemical Weapons and Materiel: Key Factors Affecting Disposal Costs and Schedule (Chapter Report, 02/10/97, ...
Under the terms of the convention, chemical warfare materiel buried before 1977 is exempt from disposal as long as it remains buried.
Although the Army estimates that buried chemical materiel accounts for $14.5 billion (95 percent) of the nonstockpile program cost, the Army is still exploring potential sites and has little and often imprecise information about the type and amount of materiel buried.
The materiel was designed for use in the employment of chemical weapons and includes unfilled munitions and components, simulant-filled munitions, dummy rounds, rocket motors, cartridge containers, and other metal and plastic parts.

 DAOD 3009-2, Government Quality Assurance (GQA)
Suppliers of materiel and services to DND and the CF are responsible for controlling quality and for supplying materiel and services that conform to contract requirements.
DND and the CF perform Government Quality Assurance (GQA) on contracts, incorporating an assessment of materiel and supplier risk, to assure that suppliers provide materiel and services that are fit for their intended purpose and meet departmental needs.
It is more effective to build quality into materiel than to deal with the cumulative costs of materiel failure arising later in the materiel life cycle.

 All Army war reserves (AWR) and pre-positioned stocks are managed by the Army Materiel Command (AMC), Alexandria, ...
Previously, war reserve materiel was managed by theater commanders in chief.
Rather than store 1,000 of this and 100 of that in a warehouse, as is common practice in depot storage, CEGE stored in one location all the equipment that a unit, such as an artillery battery, would need.
Since the purpose of war reserves is to have materiel ready to handoff to units when they arrive at any location to which they may deploy, the IOC is studying a proposal to provide hanadoff training.

When the study committee learned that commercial facilities would probably dispose of CAIS by incineration, it decided to evaluate nonincineration alternatives to incineration that would be consistent with the congressional mandate for reducing program costs, as well as evaluating incineration at commercial facilities.
Other than the two modes of RRS operation, the study committee did not evaluate the alternative of disposing of CAIS at a facility built specifically for non-stockpile materiel because it does not address the congressional request.

Chemical warfare materiel (CWM) is a collection of diverse items that were used during 60 years of efforts by the United States to develop a capability for conducting chemical warfare.
Demonstration units could be used at their present sites or moved, either as needed or to a mutually agreeable location based on a plan developed with the affected communities and regulatory authorities.
The Non-Stockpile Chemical Materiel Program should pursue a two-track strategy similar to the one adopted by the committee during its selection of a technology: (1) an evaluation of the potential of Assembled Chemical Weapons Assessment demonstration technologies and mature commercial technologies; and (2) technologies that would require further development and investment.
