This monograph describes spend analyses that the RAND Corporation conducted in 2002 for the first phase of a purchasing and supply management demonstration conducted at the Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center for purchases of F100 jet engine spares and repair services and jet engine bearings. As part of the Spares Campaign begun in early 2001 under Air Staff leadership to reengineer Air Force supply, the objective of the demonstration was to apply best practices to managing supplies, suppliers, and the supply base to attain the best quality, performance, and prices in purchased goods and services. The authors drew their findings from several Air Force and Defense Logistics Agency databases. They detail the required data and processes involved in a spend analysis and discuss the implications of their findings for F100 purchasing and supply-chain management for future spend analyses.
