Abstract:

The purpose of this research was to compare the levels of supply support afforded to different types of foreign Military Sales FMS customers. To do so, we compared requisition response times for investment depot reparable items and critical investment assets. We tested for a significant difference in requisition service days between demands against Cooperative Logistics Supply Support arrangements CLSSA and Blanket Order cases. The technique used was Analysis of Variance ANOVA. The primary variables were requisition service days and requisition type programmed or non-programmed issue priority and procurement lead time were secondary variables. Two years of requisition data from all FMS countries were sampled. The data supported the null hypothesis--that there is no statistically discernible difference between CLSSA programmed requisitions and Blanket Order Case non-programmed demands. Author
