The US Department of Defense is partnering with industry and academia on a multiphase CTMA initiative to help organizations visualize and identify data sectors that can be addressed to lower supply chain costs, while simultaneously developing capabilities and processes for improving performance metrics. An industry partner must begin with proper assessment of current costs and performance of product lines and extend the assessment through the entire product life cycle within the supply chain.
Specific objectives will include:
- Expand evaluation and inventory of existing process documents and libraries for the purpose of determining process gaps, undocumented processes, and required updates in accordance with existing policies and applicable regulations.
- Research, development, and documentation of additional applicable supplier operations processes.
- Enhance intra-agency coordination as necessary with appropriate personnel to develop comprehensive Local Operating Procedures (LOP)/job aides.
- Evolve the creation of report(s) and/or tracking and/or dashboard(s) that capture and allow for the analysis of data.
- Expand and maintain LOP content in a Post Award Library.
- Develop additional processes and procedures to assist vendors with supply operations.
- Enrich intra-agency coordination with appropriate personnel to develop and maintain a library/website to house processes and information pertinent to government vendors.
- Provide recommendations on process improvements and efficiencies that include, but not limited to, the reduction in time, increased directorate/personnel performance, and/or audit compliance.
- Expand data analysis of data sources supporting supplier operations.
- Develop dashboards to facilitate efficient decision making of the employees and leadership of supplier operations.
