Entering into Government Contracts with the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency

Government Contracting Tips with DLA

The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) is committed to open government contracting opportunities to small businesses. Government contractors play a huge part in helping the agency provide combat support to the DoD. Read on below to learn more about their requirements and procurement practices.

The Procurement Technical Assistance (PTAP) facilitates federal contracting in DLA

The PTAP was created to increase the number of government contractors. It is administered by the Small Business Programs with the help of states, non-profit organizations and local governments. It supports businesses by giving government contracting tips in registration, identifying contract opportunities, and preparation of bids. Most of the services given by the PTAP are free.

What does the DLA buy from government contractors?

The DLA procures almost 100% of the consumable items used by the American military forces to operate. This includes food, uniforms, fuel, energy, medical supplies, construction and barrier equipment.

More than 68% of the military’s spare parts are also supplied by the DLA. It also oversees the reutilization of military gear, and gives logistics information products and document automation services. The items are procured in quantities that are sufficient to meet the DLA’s projected needs. Many of the items are delivered directly by the government contractor. Some are stored and distributed to a system of depots.

Where to look for government contracting tips and opportunities?

  • DLA Internet Board System

This is a web-based software that enables you to search, view, and submit secure quotations for DLA items. It also permits users to view Invitations for Bids, Requests for Proposals, awards and other information related to DLA government contracting.

  • FedBizOpps (FBO)

Government contracting opportunities that are worth more than USD 25,000 are posted in FedBizOpps. Federal agencies also post their solicitations in FBO which also includes information on when and how should government contractors respond.
