Welcome to the Performance Based Logistics Community of Practice (PBL CoP)!
This Community serves as a platform to connect PBL practitioners from across multiple career fields, to facilitate knowledge sharing and peer support, as well as provide a knowledge repository for key PBL-related material across the Department of Defense.
Successful PBL strategy development and implementation is not just the responsibility of the Life Cycle Logistician and Product Support Manager, however. It requires the combined talents, engagement, and expertise of multiple functional disciplines. As the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Logistics & Materiel Readiness said in a September-October 2012 Defense AT&L Magazine article, “…you really need A-team contracting officers, A-team sustainers, and A-team program managers to develop the right…PBL contract.” These words ring true today, nearly a decade later.
