DLA has been on the ground since the beginning of Operation United Assistance, providing critical lifesaving supplies for service members engaged in the fight against Ebola in West Africa.
Mapping the Way
DLA’s unique print-on-demand mapping capabilities have helped ensure troops on the ground in West Africa have the most current information in their efforts to combat Ebola and support the local population.
Contracting in Africa
DLA’s Joint Contingency Acquisition Support Office has provided contracting expertise and coordination on the ground to support Operation United Assistance.
In an unprecedented move, DLA chartered a commercial cargo vessel to move supplies throughout West Africa and provide flexibility in the agency’s contributions to Operation United Assistance.
Protecting the Force
DLA is providing more than 1.5 million medical personal protective sets to American aid workers and service members working to contain the Ebola virus in West Africa.
Energy Convergence in the Pacific
A pilot program in the Pacific has helped incorporate DLA Energy into the Enterprise Business System, the agency’s primary financial system for daily transactions.
Fighting the Flu
For the first time, DLA Troop Support provided influenza immunizations to the Afghan National Army to keep it protected during flu season.
