Encourage you to read this particular issue cover-to-cover. There is much here to consider, and this particular edition affords readers an excellent opportunity to gain insights into the perspectives of leadership from across the department.
Two articles in particular would encourage life cycle logisticians and product support managers to take note of are the “Improving Tradecraft of Services Acquisition“ (Overview: “The Department of Defense recently has spent more money on contracted services than on weapons systems. But buying contract services lacks the structured governance and oversight of weapons acquisitions”) and the “Sustainment and Logistics in Better Buying Power“ article (Summary: “The latest guidance emphasizes not just increasing Performance-Based Logistics (PBL) but also ensuring its effective use. Specific actions include developing common ways to measure PBL effectiveness and using those measures to track results and reporting the results quarterly”). We have also posted links to both of these articles on the PBL & Product Support Articles & Reports site along with more than 350 related articles and reports already available on this excellent Performance Based Logistics Community of Practice (PBL CoP) resource.
