The Department of Navy’s (DON) Product Data Reporting and Evaluation Program (PDREP) enables the reporting, collection and use of supplier performance information (SPI) identified in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR), Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS), Department of Defense, and DON regulations. The program supports the Navy’s oversight and management of the supply chain ensuring first time quality and on-time delivery of materials. It promotes continuous process improvement aimed at increasing material readiness by reducing material defects entering the supply chain. The program provides significant cost avoidance and overall savings to DoD and the Navy.

The DON PDREP is sponsored by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Navy Research, Development and Acquisition ASN (RD&A) and is the designated SECNAV program authority. The Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy Expeditionary Programs and Logistics Management is the primary office of responsibility and provides program guidance and policy. The Naval Sea Systems Command (SEA 05R3, formerly 06P) is the program’s Functional Manager. Naval Sea Logistics Center Portsmouth is the Deputy Functional Manager and the Automated Information System (AIS) Manager.

SECNAV Instruction 4855.3D is the foundation of the program and establishes requirements for all DON activities to report SPI into the PDREP-AIS. The AIS is the single authorized DON database used to record, collect, retrieve and analyze SPI. Within the AIS are modules that provide a repository for information such as material deficiencies, non-conformances, discrepancies, technical receipt inspections, first article tests, bulletins, engineering reports, warranties, material commonality tools, contracted material delivery performance, as well as supplier audits, surveys and more. The AIS is the DON authoritative source for counterfeit material reporting. Navy Standard Operating Procedure 3683 describes implementation procedures for Navy and Marine Corps activities.

The DON’s PDREP and its AIS are the link between the men and women in the field and the support agencies and contractors who supply them materials.
