Many systems developed over the last twenty years are surpassing their originally planned life cycle, as well as, the DoDgass. In many cases, the systems have been subjected to at least one service life extension. Because of this, the logistics support concepts used to maintain and to service these systems play a significant factor in determining the overall life-cycle-cost for a system. If the DoD can find a more efficient and effective logistics support concept, substantial cost savings may be realized. Under the appropriate conditions, Contractor Logistics Support (CLS) is an effective means to support Marine Corps ground equipment. DoD Regulation 5000.2R, Mandatory Procedures for Major Defense Acquisition Programs (MDAP) and Major Automated Information Systems (AIS), and congressional statutes mandate the consideration of CLS in the acquisition process. The purpose of this study is to assess the Marine Corpsgas new Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement CLS contract and its effectiveness to incentivize the contractor to perform within the requirements of the contract. Results from this study suggest that substantial improvements can be made in the way the Marine Corps contracts for CLS.
