A third audit will address the industrial prime vendor program at the Air Force Logistics Centers. The Defense Supply Center Philadelphia initiated the industrial prime vendor program in July 1998 as a test or demonstration program to explore innovative logistics solutions for providing spare parts used in maintenance, repair and overhaul facilities. The conceptual goal of the industrial prime vendor program was to improve logistics support to the service depot maintenance facilities at a lower cost by streamlining the logistics pipeline. The industrial prime vendor program is a customer oriented supply chain management initiative that turns complete responsibility of bench- stock material over to a third-party vendor. The primary customers covered under the demonstration program are Navy depots and Air Force logistics centers. FY 2001 budget figures show overall bench-stock sales at about 284 million, which includes the industrial prime vendor bench-stock sales at about 38 million. The Defense Supply Center Philadelphia awarded industrial prime vendor contract SP0500-98-D-BP03 to Raytheon on August 19, 1998 to support Cherry Point. The contract has an estimated material value of 15 million annually. Also, the contract provides approximately 1,260,000 in annual overhead costs and sales totaled 1,569,120 720,605 spot buys 655,368 preexpended
