Abstract : For the past four years, Project BOSS (Buy Our Spares Smart) has been improving the spare parts acquisition process and reducing the cost of spare parts procurements. Our cumulative cost avoidance dollars for Fiscal Years 1984 through 1987 amount to over $1.3 billion. Comparing resources expended for our efforts, we show a 4 to 1 Return on Investment (ROI). The cost avoidance data we report represents only the solid, auditable results of initial purchases incident to spares breakouts, competition other actions to ensure fair prices. Project BOSS was established in August 1983 to address the spares acquisition problems uncovered by Navy and Department of Defense audits and further highlighted by Congress and the news media. The Naval Supply Systems Command is the lead systems command for Project BOSS.
