Abstract:

This report identifies improvements the Air Force can make in the supply systems local purchase LP procedures to reduce the time and cost to process an LP request. We found a number of areas to improve mission support by increasing stockage of LP items and reducing processing time and costs. For example, we recommend use of more expeditious contracting methods to shorten leadtime, a method to determine if price discounts are advantageous to the Air Force at base level, and a method to determine what items to buy for a minimum order amount purchase. In addition, we recommend expanding Phase IV capabilities or using a microcomputer interface for item descriptive data, synchronizing supply and contracting time tables, and direct customer to buyer contact when appropriate.
