How Do They Buy
• Majority of catering food purchases for all branches
of the service are done through a Prime Vendor
– Installations have full access to the Prime Vendor
inventories; purchases completed at the installation level
• Supplies/equipment purchased through the Air Force
Nonappropriated Fund Purchasing Office (AFNAFPO)
– Installations also purchase directly from vendors
• Since purchases are primarily at installation level,
suppliers must accept credit cards (V, MC)
Prime Vendor
• There has to be a need, meet nutritional requirements, meet
fair and reasonable pricing, and enough demand from
customers to meet minimum requirements for the Prime
Vendor
• All suppliers should first contact the Service HQ for APF and
Installation activities for NAF to market their products
• Be aware that having an approved product does not guarantee
sales – Installation activities have choices (no sole source)
• Overseas product will require a Manufacturer Purchasing
Agreement (MPA) to be in place
