What Performance Based Logistics is and What it is Not And What it Can and Cannot Do Defense Acquisition Review Journal Magazine Article - DTD Oct 09

Intended to help clear up PBL-related misconceptions and misperceptions, this article in the October 2009 edition of Defense Acquisition Review Journal (ARJ) magazine attempts to go back to basics and outline what PBL is and what it is not. Although Performance Based Logistics (PBL) sustainment strategies have been used successfully for the last decade, misperceptions persist. This article discusses what PBL is and is not; and what it can and cannot do for the military services, program managers, and ultimately the warfighter. PBL is not about contractors on the battlefield or outsourcing organic workload. It is about weapon system performance, readiness, best value outcomes, capability, and effective and efficient warfighter support. PBL represents a fundamental change in how DoD supports its weapon systems and ensures those systems are reliable, maintainable, and available when and where the warfighter needs them. When it comes to delivering performance outcomes: PBL works. (Note: ARJ copies prior to 2010 are no longer available online).
