Awarded under the army's one acquisition solution for integrated services (OASIS) contract vehicle, the deal has an estimated multi-year value of $30m, including all options.

Battelle Logistics Lifecycle Analytics business leader Michael Mannion said: "Battelle's supply chain management methodologies, diagnostics, and benchmarking tools will assist the G-4 make dramatic and rapid improvements in army supply chain business processes."

The army G-4 conducts detailed planning and oversees integrated logistics policies, programmes, and plans in support of Army Force Generation missions to enable army readiness.

In particular, the initiative restore and sustain readiness, right-sizing inventories, optimising army pre-positioned stocks, delivering fully-integrated management information systems linking the institutional army with the operational army, and maintaining the capability to support expeditionary forces in a complex and uncertain global environment.

The company already has decades of expertise in designing, developing, and managing large-scale logistics modernisation programmes for all the US Department of Defense components.

However, the army is working with three subcontractors with experience in supporting G-4 requirements, including the Logistics Management Institute, a not-for-profit government consulting firm, Connected Logistics, a department of Veterans Affairs-certified service-disabled, veteran-owned small business, and an independently owned company, Quantum Research International.

The team's collective research, analytical, and business process reengineering support is expected to provide the G-4 with a sound basis to support army leadership priorities for sustaining, preparing, resetting, and transforming the nation's army to provide expeditionary, decisive land power to the Joint Forces.
