Abstract : From the first issuances of Better Buying Power (BBP) in 2010, its key sustainment initiative has focused on Performance-Based Logistics (PBL). With the updated guidance for BBP 3.0 issued April 9, it is worth expanding the view of these updated initiatives through the sustainment prism. This article finds that sustainment permeates the entire set of BBP initiatives and offers substantial contributions to its overall theme of Achieving Dominant Capabilities through Technical Excellence and Innovation. Sustainment also underpins the earlier focus of BBP on affordability, on should cost, and on smarter ways to procure services and increasing the professionalism of the workforce. Lets look at how sustainment does that.
