To assist in this thrust toward common supply and logistic practices a new appointment of Director General of Supply Coordination was made. 1965 saw a continuous drive, carried out at a fast pace and against a tight timetable imposed by the Secretary of State, to study and determine future policies. In part, the new machinery was used and the areas of the Defence Staff and the Defence Secretariat were heavily involved. In part, ad hoc groups were set up to produce reports.
