Abstract : Recent procurement reforems adopted by the USAF have given rise to concern within the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) that supply lead times under Co-operative Logistics Supply Support Arrangements (CLSSA) may have been considerably extended, thereby invalidating the current estimates of such lead time of the various types of RAAF requisitions within the RAAF-USAF CLSSA, determine the extent of their variation since 1980, and establish whether or not the procurement reforms were responsible for any variation found. The study was limited to research on investment items only. The component of lead time measured by this study extended only from order receipt to order shipment. Data extracted from the SAMIS computer indicated that this period had increased by 72% for programmed requisitions (those for which demands are placed in accordance with a prefunded forecast of requirements) and 122% for non-programmed requisitions (all others). Keywords: Theses; Foreign military sales.
