Consolidation of DoD Bidder's Mailing List Application,
DEFENSE LOGISTICS AGENCY ALEXANDRIA VA
This paper describes a need to streamline the processing of Bidders Mailing List BML Applications, Standard Form 129, as supplemented, and at the same time, takes the first step toward modernizing an important element in our acquisition process. History has shown us that wars are lost because of the lack of supplies in the right place at the right time. With todays modern weapons systems, flight faster than sound, capability to land on the moon and return to earth and numerous other spectacular accomplishments, it would be negligent not to concentrate also on our ability to support these system with rapidity and effectiveness. The consolidation of the BML applications to one or more locations would be cost-effective for Government and industry. This paper will support the need to consolidate the bidders mailing list applications. It will also point out that the need to consolidate could well be the first step in streamlining the acquisition process.
