On March 9, 2006, the Maritime Administration (MARAD) and the U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) co-hosted a meeting of the VISA JPAG at the Military Sealift Command in Washington, DC. Meeting attendance was by invitation only, due to the nature of the information discussed and the need for a government-issued security clearance. Of the 52 U.S.-flag carrier corporate participants enrolled in the VISA program only the 13 companies whose vessels were modeled in the Department of Defense’s Mobility Capabilities Study (MCS) were invited to the JPAG meeting. A representative for maritime labor also participated in the meeting. In addition, representatives from MARAD and the Department of Defense attended the meeting. James Caponiti, Associate Administrator for National Security for MARAD and Margaret Leclaire, Deputy Director, Strategy, Plans, Policy and Programs for USTRANSCOM welcomed the participants. Both Mr. Caponiti and Ms. Leclaire noted that they expected the meeting would provide sealift planners with a better appreciation of how industry could provide additional commercial sealift resources to meet Department of Defense (DOD) requirements.

The purpose of the meeting was to address questions raised by DOD related to the MCS at the December meeting. The discussion of questions and responses was led by Mr. Caponiti. Industry representatives expressed that DOD needed to provide more clarification on possible scenarios where commercial sealift might be used to meet DOD requirements. It was noted that if industry had a clear indication of the types of cargo to be moved, timelines, and the various locations of cargo origin and destination, they could provide DOD information on how requirements could be satisfied in the most effective manner by commercial carriers. As a result of the discussion, industry and government officials agreed that a future JPAG table top exercise would be the best method to address industry capabilities to meet DOD requirements.
