In an overall effort to reduce total operating costs within the Department of Defense, several Defense Management Review Decisions were issued which significantly affected the Navys inventory levels for spare parts. This thesis examines the effect of these changes on requisition processing at the wholesale level. The primary objective is to determine if requirements are being satisfied from wholesale stock on hand at the Point of Entry POE of the requisition, or if unnecessary additional costs and delivery delays are incurred as a result of incorrect processing of the requisitions. In-depth analysis is conducted on requisitions submitted by West coast fleet units for DLA managed material for which wholesale stock was available at the POE. Research revealed that requisitions were not always satisfied locally and that adherence to current policy was inconsistent, causing delays and additional costs. A supplemental finding revealed a need for wholesale stock positioning policy changes where material would be actively positioned at selected stock points to support regional demand.
