Abstract:

This study seeks to understand the factors that contributed to the successful development and implementation of the Air Force Furnishings Commodity Council AFFCC. Specifically, we explore the challenges associated with supporting small business goals without sacrificing strategic outcomes, the difficulties of standing up a commodity council whose spend has no functional ownership or centralized funding, and the complexities of establishing accurate cost savings performance and validation metrics. We also explore the concept of maximizing the utilization of the AFFCC by Air Force organizations.
