Contact Standardization, Specification & QPLS

Branch Chief


Standardization is how we provide the warfighter with equipment that is interoperable, reliable, and technologically superior. Items bought to specifications usually require less lead time, reduced stock levels, and result in fewer back orders. In addition, testing costs can be reduced for first article testing using qualified products lists.

The DoD currently uses more than 38,000 standardization documents including federal, military, commercial and industrial standards. Approximately, 6,500 of these documents relate to the commodities bought by DLA Aviation such as instrumentation, control cable system components, bearings, batteries, terminal lugs, etc.
