DOD system aims to speed wartime procurement

The Defense Department is using a system in the Persian Gulf region that brings procurement officers closer to the front lines to speed supplies to troops there.

DOD's Standard Procurement System has deployed 49 notebook PCs running the Battle Ready Contingency Contracting System to Kuwait and Qatar.

Contracting officers can bring the system closer to the battlefield to better assess warfighters' needs and begin the procurement process immediately, officials said.

'Most of the contracts are already built on the system,' said Army Col. Jacob Haynes, program manager of SPS. 'This is going to be a logistics multiplier.'
