How our DLA Prime Vendor Programs Benefit Suppliers
What is the Prime Vendor Program?
The U.S. Department of Defense operates a supply system to support its extensive range of national defense activities. The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) manages most of the enormous number of items purchased within his system. DLA Troop Support issues and administers vendor contracts, lessening the administrative burden for the DoD.
To streamline its procurement activities, the DLA developed Prime Vendor Programs designed to provide supplies and equipment directly from integrated Prime Vendor supply contractors. Noble’s Prime Vendor contracts with DLA offer a vehicle to consolidate orders, ensure discounted pricing, obtain items quickly, and receive enhanced logistic services to meet the specific needs of our defense customers.
