From the report: "The Department of Defense has begun implementing the Defense Logistics Agency’s maintenance, repair, and operations prime vendor program, but in fiscal year 1999, it covered only a small portion of business operations. The Agency has awarded prime vendor contracts to support military installations nationwide and at some overseas locations, and over 100 customers placed orders with these vendors in fiscal year 1999. These orders represented about $59 million, or less than 10 percent of the estimated $670 million the Department spent on facility maintenance supplies during that year. Use of the program varied widely among the installations. At 7 of the 11 installations we examined, base personnel ordered, on average, about 55 percent of facilities maintenance supplies from the prime vendor during fiscal year 1999. Of the other four installations, three did not use the program in fiscal year 1999 and one could not quantify the extent to which the prime vendor was used."
