The Department of Defense (DoD) has implemented the Synchronized Predeployment & Operational Tracker (SPOT) as the single source to track deployed personnel supporting DoD military operations worldwide. SPOT is a scalable, net-centric, Web-based application that provides the capability to maintain accountability and report status for deployed personnel across the military, civilian, and contractor communities.
A key benefit of SPOT is its technology integration. SPOT integrates with existing system-ofrecord
applications to provide up-to-date information related to contracts and contractors. For
example, SPOT tracks contractor movement through its interface with the Joint Asset Movement
Management System (JAMMS) and validates contractor identity by interfacing with the Defense
Manpower Data Center (DMDC). SPOT also features a graphical user interface (GUI) with
intuitive business flows based on user roles.
This chapter describes the learning objectives for Government Organization User Training and
provides information on ways to maximize your learning and working experience with SPOT.
You will also learn about the different SPOT user roles and their key distinctions.
