The Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) must streamline its method of providing acquisition-related procedures, guidance, and instructions to its contracting workforce. NAVSUP’s supplemental guidance to the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS), and Naval Marine Corps Acquisition Regulation Supplement (NMCARS) is currently published in 142 policy letters and 13 directives. NAVSUP’s current process of providing policy and guidance via dissemination of 155 individual documents is an inefficient method of communicating contracting policy and guidance to its acquisition workforce. Consolidation and organization of the information contained in these documents into a single acquisition supplement will provide the contracting workforce with an efficient method of accessing needed information when awarding and administering contracts in support of assigned logistics support functions and acquisitions related to NAVSUP’s unique contracting authorities. It will also improve the NAVSUP Contracting Management Directorate’s ability to efficiently communicate acquisition policy, guidance, and instructions to its acquisition workforce. This business practice improvement effort will improve communication between the NAVSUP Contracting Management Directorate’s policy team, decision makers and contracting workforce; increase workplace productivity; and provide the acquisition workforce an efficient resource for obtaining NAVSUP supplemental guidance to the FAR, DFARS, and NMCARS.
