Abstract : The results of a year-long study effort are contained in volumes 1 and 2 of this Report. The effect of implementing these recommendations will be as follows: The number of items assigned Federal Stock Numbers (FSNs) will be increased somewhat in the short and intermediate range; in the long range, FSNs will be replaced by common Government/industry identification numbers; Use of Contractor Operated Parts Stores will be expanded to all Military Services and for a wider range of locally available commodities; the number of items for which direct local purchase is the authorized method of supply will be reduced significantly; There will be fewer centrally managed stocked items and more centrally managed nonstocked items; Greater responsibility for total supply support with commensurate improvements in central purchase support capability will be given Inventory ONTROL Points, especially Defense Supply Centers with Special Purchase missions; Installation local purchase organizations will decline in importance and will be reduced significantly in size and scope; The Defense Automatic Addressing System will be given an expanded role in requisition routing and screening, particularly for non-FSN items.
