Obsolete items are generally defined as systems and associated repair parts that are no longer used by our forces. However,some obsolete repair parts may be needed by friendly foreign governments to support weapon systems they acquired from theUnited States through the FMS program. In 1979 we reported that DOD was retaining millions of dollars in inventories,of obsoleterepair parts for possible sale to friendly foreign governments.By identifying foreign governments needs and giving those governments the opportunity to purchase obsolete repair,parts, DOD canenhance logistics support to foreign allies and generate revenue which can be used to acquire parts needed to support weaponssystems still in use by U.S. Forces.
