Information gathered through this market survey could be used to aid in the definition and refinement of requirements for the secondary item supply support for the night vision goggles, AN/PVS-7D, AN/PVS-14 and AN/AVS-6. Potential uses for the information received may include development of requirements packages and possible future solicitations. Additionally, the Government seeks input on the data required to effectively esti mate demand forecast, cost, and performance measurements.The PBL arrangement will have a supply support sustainment focus, and will make the supplier accountable through a series of performance metrics. Performance metrics will measure the effectiveness an d efficiency of the supply chain. The metrics requirements will be incorporated into the contract and offer increased challenges over the contract period. The supplier will be responsible for their supply chain management (to include forecasting, purchasin g, inventory, and transportation). In addition, we need to define supplier capability to interface with Army inventory management systems in order for the supplier to receive and process requisitions and maintain a requisition status tracking and reporting system.This will be a 10 year effort. The PBL contract may be awarded by individual system or multiple combinations thereof and will contain cash incentive clauses based on performance metrics.
