Abstract:

Procurement Administrative Lead Time PALT has generally been viewed as one of the primary causes of failure to meet the users required delivery date. Consequently, previous research on PALT has concerned itself almost exclusively with how to reduce PALT rather than how to better manage PALT. The traditional ideas about PALT as well as current reality were re-examined in order to develop more sophisticated PALT management and performance criteria. The specific objectives of this project were to analyze an Army Commands current system for managing PALT, determine meaningful PALT objectives as an aid in managing PALT and establish PALT management and performance criteria for use by procurement managers.
