Military Handbook- Guidelines for the Implementation of DoD Parts Control Program

3-3.1 Lack of Government Furnished Baseline Parts Lists.

Early instances of contractor submission of proposed PPSLs without the constraints of a contractually invoked Government Furnished Baseline (GFB) parts list resulted in excessively long lists of unscreened parts being delivered to the MPCAG or the parts review activity (PRA) . The high volume of screening effort made it difficult to meet contractual evaluation deadline dates. To. avoid these peak workloads, the use of GFB parts lists was initiated.

3-3.2 Lack of Parts Control.

Parts control efforts have been omitted in some medium-sized acquisitions, e.g. , the purchase of 300-400 armored cars. Presumably, the cost of acquiring as-built document at ion and of reviewing the proposed repair parts was considered excessive for the small fleet of commercially developed items. As a result, both the initial buy and later buys of repair parts were sole source. The cost burden quickly grew to the point that a Government crew found it necessary to disassemble one of the vehicles, and a belated provisioning and as-built parts list was created to support further repair parts buys.

This chapter describes the basic purpose of the handbook, explains how to use the handbook, and provides an overview of the handbook on a chapter-by-chapter basis.

1-1 Purpose.
This handbook has been prepared as a guide for the implementation of the Department of Defense (DoD) Parts Control Program (PCP) and is intended for use as a reference book by the military departments and other Government agencies (hereafter referred to as Government components) and associated contractors. It is structured Specifically for use by program managers and project engineers in the selection and identification of applicable PCP requirements. The handbook contains detailed information, suggested approaches, and examples to assist in determining appropriate PCP requirements on a contract-by-contract basis.

1-2 Scope and application.
This handbook is to be used by the Government components in applying the PCP to ‘-contracts for major weapon systems, end-items of equipment where logistics support is required, and in which acquisition managers foresee appreciable life cycle cost savings” (Ref.1). It will be used to identify the various conditions and elements that should be considered for tailoring and applying MIL-STD-965 (Ref. 2) requirements to specific acquisitions. Contract categories, established in MIL-STD-965 and in Table 1-1 below, will be used to assist in determining to what extent PCP requirements should be contractually invoked. Also this handbook is to assist in the accomplishment of the major objectives of the PCP and in the establishment of methods, such as reviews, audits, and reports, that may be used to assure conformity with the contractual PCP requirement e. Though specifically structured for program managers, standardization, and component engineers; this handbook will assist personnel involved in procurement, standardization, and logistics to understand the philosophy and purpose of parts control.
