VE savings are the result of approved changes offered by our valued contractors as Value Engineering Change Proposals (VECPs) and Government personnel as Value Engineering Proposals (VEPs). Contractors and employees can submit value engineering assistance requests to obtain initial information on items of interest and to request information on how to formally submit proposals through the tool below. 

DLA Value Management Program provides a method for proposals which recommend cost savings changes to DLA Troop Support systems, equipment, facilities, procedures and supplies.
