Abstract:

LMC found a number of areas to improve and recommended Base Supply provide contracting with annual demand levels for selected items. HWAS also suggest more expeditious contracting methods be used to shorten leadtime. Contracting officers should be provided annual demands for items from mandatory sources of supply to allow advance allocation, clearances, and automatic ordering.

Finally, HWAS recommended that testing of the use of credit cards or checking accounts, when appropriate, to purchase small dollar items.
