[This is the fifth in a series of videos profiling Defense Logistics Agency acquisition professionals.]

A new acquisition professionals video focusing on a DLA Troop Support employee who finds acquisition solutions for his customers was released on the organization’s YouTube and Facebook sites March 23. 

 “Big Book of Rules” profiles Matthew Ligato, a contracting officer whose knowledge of contracting regulations helps him build fair and open solicitations.
A key message in the video is how shipping straight from manufacturers help reduce inventory and costs from DLA warehouses.

The acquisition videos were created to increase recognition of the importance of education in the DLA acquisition community and to highlight the diversity in the 14 areas of the community.
