What’s the Big Idea?
Within a year of taking charge of DLA, Vice Adm. Mark Harnitchek set a series of five goals to help the agency save more than $13 billion over six years.
Be Smart Buyers of the Right Stuff
The items DLA procures for the military services and other customers make up a large part of the agency’s budget. Getting better prices from vendors and contractors means passing savings to warfighters.
Clean Out the Attic
Reducing excess inventory and infrastructure is helping to save money and other resources. Now DLA has to make sure the attic doesn’t get filled up again.
Improve Process and Productivity
DLA is set to double Defense Department-set savings goals for the agency by reducing operating costs and becoming more efficient in its business processes.
Delight Our Customers
The results of a broad-ranging customer survey are helping inform changes to how DLA supports its military service customers
Audit readiness has been a major focus of DLA leaders for more than a year. The agency is set to be audit ready by 2015, a full two years before the target set for the Defense Department.

A website on a DLA employee intranet includes a variety of tools to help employees refine and submit ideas that contribute to the director’s five Big Ideas.
