Abstract:

Congressional mandates have affected the DOD acquisition process in many ways. Frequently, laws are enacted without considering these impacts. The purpose of this project is to determine the impact of Public Law 98-369, the Competition in Contracting Act of 1984, on Air Force Logistics Command AFLC Contract Administrative Leadtime CALT. This has been accomplished through analysis of existing legislation, historical AFLC leadtime data, and the applicable regulatory requirements. While the data used pertain to AFLC, the conclusions can be generalized to all wholesale logistics activities which deal in weapon system replenishment spare parts. PL 98-369 will add approximately six days to the acquisition process. This leadtime increase should cost AFLC approximately 41 million for increased inventory in FY 85. While this impact is significant, the impact on acquisitions exceeding 100,000 is even more significant.
