What is the DPMP?

 

- The DPMP is a new resource for the parts management community. The portal is the result of a Government and Defense Industry collaboration to help reduce the cost and simplify the tasks of performing Parts Management activities.  

- The DPMP is a “One Stop Shop” for parts management resources. The DPMP provides one place to go for members of the parts management community to find and access what they need.  

- The DPMP is a navigation tool. The DPMP makes it easy to find and access destinations of interest. Each navigation pathway leads to an organization, a tool, or some other resource of interest to the parts management community.  

- The DPMP is a marketplace for the parts management community. It is a place where customers can find vendors and where vendors can find customers.  

- The DPMP is a communication resource and data exchange. Every organization participating in the DPMP will own and control a destination page (a bridge page) to be used to communicate with the rest of the parts management community.
