Contractor Logistic Support (CLS) is the methodology by which responsibility for
the provision of an agreed level of support is transferred to an industry provider.
CLS can cover a wide spectrum of industry involvement ranging from minimal transfer,
under traditional product based support solutions, to maximum transfer of responsibility
to a Contractor.
The above range of activities is covered by the terms ‘Contracting for Availability’
and ‘Contracting for Capability’.
CLS arrangements must be tailored to the needs of each particular support scenario.
The resultant CLS Contract will generally include penalties for inadequate performance
together with incentives for effective support operations. Arrangements will further
include an efficient monitoring and sentencing system.
Adept personnel have developed and currently manage a number of very successful CLS
programmes. Based on this experience our personnel can provide the necessary expertise
and skill to complete or assist with the following CLS related tasks:
Development of CLS Programmes;
Compilation of CLS Plans;
Implementation of CLS Programmes;
CLS Contract Management;
Monitoring and Reporting of CLS Performance.
Performance monitoring and asset tracking are achieved using in-house software tools
designed specifically for this purpose and tailored for individual CLS Contracts.
