Abstract : The purpose of this project is to recommend way(s) to save time in implementing many policy changes. Learning takes time, and time costs money. In any large corporate structure whenever a policy change is injected into the system, a certain amount of time transpires before the new policy is assimilated into all facets of the corporation. Massive changes generally take longer to incorporate than do minor changes due to the span of control and the degree of reeducation. A minor change may only have a localized or limited application. This project examines if procurement personnel in the Air Force Logistics Command (AFLC) can be more effective in their capability to incorporate policy changes into the acquisition process. Specifically, recommendations for a more tailored training approach will be offered. This report reviews the scope of responsibilities performed by AFLC procurement personnel, examining statistical data including AFLC sites; number of personnel; management structure; number of contracts issued; amount of dollars obligated; estimated costs involved in adding one more day to the pipeline for all AFLC due-in assets.
