Business System Modernization (BSM)

The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) continues to implement the Business Systems Modernization (BSM) Plan. The first release occurred in the summer of 2002 and was also referred to as Concept Demonstration. At that time it was operational for about five percent of the items in the Federal Government commodity groups.

BSM is designed to replace the legacy material management systems, which includes the procurement systems, with commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) systems at Defense Supply Center Richmond (DSCR), Defense Supply Center Philadelphia (DSCP), and Defense Supply Center Columbus (DSCC).

This change will incorporate world-class business practices into the federal government procurement system by focusing on supply chain management and building stronger business relationships with customers and suppliers.The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Business Systems Modernization (BSM) is by far the most significant Information Technology and reengineering project in the (DLA).
Once fully implemented, it is expected to achieve the proven benefits of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) software and reengineered business practices, resulting in better service to the military.

The goal of the BSM system is to:

  • Reengineer by fielding best practices

  • Improve customer service through collaboration

  • Provide best value solutions

  • Provide training, experience, and opportunity to succeed
