The PROS IV contract (http://www.prosiv.com/) is the fifth generation non-standard parts ordering program for support of US Department of Defense Logistics Systems. The contract value is estimated at close to $1 billion over a five-year period and the program provides for the full range of logistics support to Tri-Service Air Force, Army and Navy Foreign Military Sales customers in over 90 countries.
Program requirements include support for approximately 60,000 transactions per year related to spare parts, component repair maintenance, and task orders.

Secure XML messaging interfaces will be deployed for real-time on-line access to program data by the Air Force Security Assistance Center, and the system will provide a critical interface between the US Department of Defense Logistics System and Foreign Military Sales customers

The system has a wide array of functionality for defense industry supply chain management, while the price-performance of the implementation will provide a critical ability for us to hold the line on program operating costs”.
