Defense Logistics Agency Aviation representatives receive the 2021 Defense Department Supply Chain Excellence Award
Defense Logistics Agency Aviation representatives receive the 2021 Defense Department Supply Chain Excellence Award for their Pacer Phoenix TF-33 engine sustainment plan. Leigh Method, blue jacket, deputy assistant secretary of defense for logistics, and Alan Estevez, right, then nominee for the under secretary of commerce for industry and security, presented the award March 17 during the 2022 Logistics Officer Association Symposium in Salt Lake City, Utah. Due to supply constraints, DLA Aviation leveraged performance-based logistics to increase forecasting and material availability, for a cost savings of $10 million through 2030. DLA Aviation has won the DoD-level award twice in the last three years.
