The staff of the Office of the Quartermaster General in India managed the army's supply and transport needs - this was previously managed by the Commissariat that was phased out after formation of the British Army in India in the 1880s.

It comprised a combination of senior army officers (part of the Staff Corps) and clerical staff, serving the General Staff in India by organising centralised military logistics. Junior officers were deployed to handle logistics at a regimental level.
