4710 Commodity Group Project
Special Programs Directorate
DLA Land and Maritime intends to issue a solicitation for the purchase of Federal Supply Class (FSC) 4710 supplies to effectively and efficiently meet the needs of military customers while providing end-to-end logistical support. The solicitation will contain two groupings, one set-aside for small business and one unrestricted. The primary method of support will be customer direct shipments but there will also be terms incorporated to allow for shipments to stocking locations. The goals of this acquisition are to provide on time delivery (OTD) within time definite delivery (TDD) time frames, reduce customer wait time, provide responsive customer service, and provide best value conforming supplies to worldwide military customers. The acquisition intends to take advantage of the latest technologies, expertise, flexibility, and business practices of the commercial market place to provide time and monetary savings to the Government.
Please note, the Government intends to award one contract per grouping. The total length of any contract will not exceed 5 years.
The Government currently anticipates RFP issuance April 27, 2010.
