    Answer

    The short answer to each of your questions is "no". I am unaware of specific formal terminology to address the specific items you mentioned.
     
    1. Is there a formal logistics term for the following description? Hull specific Ready Spares, Supply System Spares and OBRPs are processed packaged and retained or stowed at the Contractor facility until the Hull is delivered to the Navy.
     
    Generically this would be referred to as Provisioning. For more information on this I would refer you to the manual which lays out “DoD Supply Chain Materiel Management Procedures: Demand and Supply Planning” DoDM 4140.01-V2, February 10, 2014. For NAVSEA specifics I would refer you to: NAVSEA Provisioning, Allowance, Fitting Out Support (PAFOS) Manual. Provided the material you are talking about was originally from the contractor it would be referred to Contractor Furnished Equipment (CFE). If the equipment came from the government, then it would be referred to as Government Furnished Equipment (GFE) or Government owned Material (GOM).
     
    2.  Is there a formal logistics term for the following event description?
     
    After the last Hull Construction is completed, unused Installation Spares will be returned to the Contractor to be re-tested and/or refurbished as required to return the item to A Condition prior to being inducted into the Navy Supply System.
     
    The spares you are referring to may fall under the category of Spares acquisition integrated with production (SAIP). SAIP allows for certain support items intended for use as spares or repair parts to be manufactured or purchased along with similar items intended for installation on the end items during production. In this process, the Government pays the same price for the spares as they paid for the production install item, with reasonable additional charges for packaging and delivery of the spare asset. The characteristics of the SAIP provisioning technique include: spares manufactured concurrently with items intended for installation, contractor identifies SAIP candidates and production schedule via data items, government selects SAIP items for production, and most significant cost deltas include packaging, handling, and transportation.
     
    3. Is there a formal logistics term for the following description?
     
    a. Set of defined equipment and/or components Spares and On-Board Repair Parts (OBRPs) procured with the initial SWS Ship-set Kit for each Hull.
     
    b. Includes Ready Spares (RS), Supply System Spares and On-Board Repair Parts (OBRPs) procured for a specific Hull.
     
    Initial Outfitting is a collective term that would fit to this generically.
