VALUE PROCUREMENT

C. Eric Youngberg

Abstract: Like their commercial counterparts, military users expect the best value for their purchase dollar. This value includes meeting specifications and price requirements, as well as less quantified needs in product support and coat-of-ownership. Reputable commercial suppliers are conscious of these needs with respect to their markets. These needs must be fulfilled on a daily basis in order to survive. The procurement process, which actually starts before any product is delivered, is tailored in the commercial world to effectively match the requirements of suppliers and users. This paper will discuss methods in which the procurement process which matches the needs of commercial suppliers and military users may also be tailored to the increased satisfaction of both groups.
