Abstract : The purpose of the business case analysis was to determine what combination of Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) staffing and medical/surgical services offered under the Prime Vendor (PV) Generation III contract would provide the best supply chain management solution for Walter Reed Army Medical Center (WRAMC). In support, three scenarios were developed with various combinations of FTE staffing and PV service options in order to determine a best value solution. Results of the analysis indicated that the addition of five floater FTEs fully cross-strained in all areas should be added to the current staffing model and no changes or additions to PV contract services should be made. This scenario improves the division's ability to respond to patient surges, National Security matters, and operational requirements. The additional FTEs can also provide logistics support branches the ability to respond to turnover, retirement, leave, and illness. Ultimately, failure to hire additional FTEs could place a greater burden on the logistics staff and force the command to assume greater risk based on the inability to respond to additional requirements.
