The Y-12 National Security Complex recently was recognized by NNSA for achieving the highest savings rate in the NNSA enterprise for fiscal year 2013.
At the recent Supply Chain Management Center (SCMC) biannual operational meeting, NNSA presented Y‑12 Procurement Operations with the award for attaining the Highest Total Strategic Savings Rate among NNSA’s seven management and operating contractors. Y‑12 achieved a total 6.51 percent savings rate of total strategic spending, as measured by the SCMC.
In FY 2014, the SCMC also accepted Y‑12’s recommendation for a regional sourcing approach. This new localized approach will award regional supplier contracts to improve lead time, reduce freight cost, and increase use of local small businesses. Sites within the same region will be served by the contracted supplier in the area instead of a national, single-source supplier.
