The Department of the Navy (DON) Value Engineering (VE) Program is a
vital program to reduce costs, increase quality and improve mission
capability across the DON and the individual warfighter. In FY 2008, the
DON reported over $130M in saving through VE programs. The Deputy
Secretary of the Navy Acquisition and Logistics Management memorandum
promulgates to the SYSCOMs, PEOs and DASNs, the USD (AT&L)
memorandum FY 2009 DoD VE Performance Metrics and FY 2010 VE Program
Plans and provides submission guidance.
