The DoD CPO has coordinated corrosion prevention and control efforts among the Military Departments, Coast Guard and NASA since 2003.

At Corrosion Forum 43, CPO encourages active participation by its partner communities and all Symposium attendees as it discusses initiatives and ongoing programs that benefit the warfighter. On Tuesday, December 6th, CPO Director Daniel J. Dunmire and CPO Deputy Director Rich Hays will report on the status of key OSD-level programs, as well as the progress they have achieved in revising acquisition-level policies. Corrosion Control and Prevention Executives from the Army, Navy, and Air Force will present overviews of their respective department-wide initiatives, challenges, and successes. Experts will also unveil noteworthy results of research and engineering projects co-sponsored by CPO and its military and university partners. On December 8th, participants are welcome to join CPO-sponsored working integrated product team (WIPT) sessions related to Corrosion Policy, Process, Procedure, and Oversight; Science and Technology; Metrics, Impact, and Sustainment; Specs and Standards; Facilities; Training and Certification; and Outreach and Communications.
