Performance-Based Logistics

This report examines the history, results, and prospects of the Defense Logistics Agency’s (DLA) effective use of Performance-Based Logistics (PBL), in order to improve DLA’s use of PBL in its operations. The study team worked with DLA to review data associated with DLA’s current and past use of PBL, reviewed the literature on the use of PBL, analyzed Federal Procurement System data from PBL contracts that were performed for other parts of the Department of Defense (DoD) and by international customers utilizing the U.S. foreign military sales process, interviewed PBL practitioners, and discussed PBL practice with oversight groups.
