Example text

Further, because they believe DLA personnel lack the technical training necessary to perform MSSR, NAVAIR and NAVSEA argue that the burden of converting many of those documents will eventually fall back onto the Air Force and Army. The two SYSCOMs also argue that document transfer to DLA is a high risk strategy. According to NAVAIR and NAVSEA, DLA’s lack of system-specific knowledge, particularly in the uniquely demanding and stressful environment of naval combat, sometimes leads it to buy the cheapest, rather than the most cost-effective, items.

This too can result in noncost-effective procurement. 30 31 The final rationale for NAVAIR’s and especially NAVSEA’s MSSR strategies is that the unique nature of naval materiel, and of the military shipbuilding industry in particular, makes acquisition reform measures in general—and not just MSSR—problematic to implement. For surface combatants in particular, where competition among suppliers is limited and commercial customers are almost nonexistent, NAVSEA argues that an independent commercial design capability does not and perhaps cannot exist.

The two SYSCOMs also argue that document transfer to DLA is a high risk strategy. According to NAVAIR and NAVSEA, DLA’s lack of system-specific knowledge, particularly in the uniquely demanding and stressful environment of naval combat, sometimes leads it to buy the cheapest, rather than the most cost-effective, items. And because of their lack of technical training, DLA personnel must rely on industry sources for information on the characteristics and capabilities of many items. This too can result in noncost-effective procurement.
