Abstract:

Each year the U.S. Government buys large amounts of conventional ammunition. In FY 1990, customers placed orders valued at 2.8 billion. Typical examples of conventional ammunition are bombs dropped from airplanes and cartridges fired in mortars, howitzers, rifles or pistols. Since many of the manufacturing processes and components are the same for conventional ammunition used by all Military Departments, DoD established the Conventional Ammunition Working Capital Fund effective October 1, 1981, to facilitate and standardize procurement. DoD created a Charter for the Conventional Ammunition Working Capital Fund and designated the U.S. Army Armament, Munitions and Chemical Command, Rock Island, Illinois, as the Single Manager for Conventional Ammunition. On June 1 of each year, the single manager is responsible for establishing standard prices for Military Departments to purchase conventional ammunition for the following fiscal year.
