Equipment & Supplies Used by Navy Exchanges
Major equipment may be generally characterized as any item or fixture required for NEX operations having a unit cost of $1,000 or more and a useful life in excess of one year. Minor equipment has a unit cost of less than $1,000 and a useful life in excess of one year.
Most equipment is purchased by NEXCOM's Corporate Contracts from prime manufacturing sources or their representatives/distributors. Purchase decisions are generally based on the offer or proposal from a responsible vendor, which includes the lowest total cost that meets the specifications and specific operational and delivery requirements. NEXCOM also makes extensive use of "best value" source selection techniques, where the proposal that is considered most advantageous, based on an evaluation against key factors (one of which is price), is chosen.
Many operating supplies and repair services are purchased at the NEX level utilizing a Commercial Purchase Card in amounts below $5000 per transaction for items or supplies and $2,500 per transaction for services. Contracts are often used for items which are in recurring demand, such as custom printed documents and forms, plastic shopping bags with logo, jewelry boxes, various Navy Lodge items (such as linens and uniforms) and other general supply items.
Individual delivery orders for expense items and services, are often placed using the Purchase Card. Contracts are awarded through competitive negotiations with prime sources by NEXCOM's Corporate Contracts or district contracting office in Italy.
