Value Management

The Subsistence Value Management (VM) Office is located in the Supplier Support Division, strategically positioned, to serve the Subsistence Directorate worldwide. Our office is part of the broader Department of Defense and Defense Logistics Agency Value Management/Value Engineering community.

Value Engineering Defined

Value Engineering (VE) is an organized effort directed at analyzing the functional requirements of systems, equipment, facilities, procedures and supplies for the purpose of achieving essential functions at the lowest total cost consistent with needed performance, safety, reliability, quality, and maintainability.

Value Engineering Savings

Subsistence VE savings are the result of changes offered by our valued contractors and those submitted by Directorate personnel including DLA Troop Support-Pacific and DLA Troop Support-Europe. Contractors submit value engineering change proposals (VECPs) which recommend cost savings changes to their contracts while government personnel submit value engineering proposals (VEPs) which recommend cost savings changes to DLA Troop Support systems, equipment, facilities, procedures and supplies. The changes cover a wide area and include commercialization, packaging, packing, labeling, transportation, warehousing, quality assurance, and processing.
