Abstract : This paper describes a need to streamline the processing of Bidder's Mailing List (BML) Applications, Standard Form 129, as supplemented, and at the same time, takes the first step toward modernizing an important element in our acquisition process. History has shown us that wars are lost because of the lack of supplies in the right place at the right time. With today's modern weapons systems, flight faster than sound, capability to land on the moon and return to earth and numerous other spectacular accomplishments, it would be negligent not to concentrate also on our ability to support these system with rapidity and effectiveness. The consolidation of the BML applications to one or more locations would be cost-effective for Government and industry. This paper will support the need to consolidate the bidder's mailing list applications. It will also point out that the need to consolidate could well be the first step in streamlining the acquisition process.
