End of Year is on the Horizon — Are You Ready?

By August 15, 2019ADS Customer Service

It’s all too common for government entities to reach a use it or lose it period toward the end of the fiscal year. This is a pertinent time for buyers to determine any outstanding requirements and submit them to their contracting office for approval.

For customers, this means NOW is the time to start gathering any last-minute purchasing requirements.

As defense budgets shrink and a larger emphasis is put on improving the ordering process, the Defense Logistics Agency Troop Support contracts continue to provide users with a simple, efficient procurement vehicle.

Tailored Logistic Supply Programs (TLSP)

DID YOU KNOW?

All orders expected to be funded with FY19 funds must be received by August 30, 2019; 11:59 p.m. EST. Orders received after this deadline will be returned to the submitter with the opportunity to resubmit using FY20 funds.
