  • 2. Improve the timeliness of procurement request fulfillment for the industrial program
    • Problem Statement: The procurement request fulfillment process for the Coast Guard Industrial Program currently takes an average of 9.3 days for a single Type 32 purchase. Procurements are currently fulfilled at ten locations around the Coast Guard, and the average time to make a purchase at each site ranges from 1.9 to 39.1 days according to a recent study. To meet customer needs, procurement fulfillments should be completed within 5 days. The problem has existed for several years.
