Notice to Contractors

Potential For Delays in Receiving Email From Non-DoD Entities

Weekdays from 0800 to 1700, there may be delays of up to several hours receiving email sent from non-DoD entities (e.g. Government Contractors) to DoD entities (e.g. DLA contract specialists & contract administrators).  DISA is working efforts to mitigate delays and return to normal processing timeframes of less than 5 minutes. Potential for email delays may exist for the near future. 

For DLA contractors, this issue may delay receipt of supplemental information/emails.

Based on the above, contractors and customers are encouraged to call their Contract specialist if you require immediate assistance or have a concern over an email having been received by DLA.


For information on all current contract solicitations and opportunities for contracting with DLA Disposition Services for CONUS and OCONUS (Europe, Asia, South West Asia and Africa) DLA Disposition Services solicitations are available on the SAM.GOV website.
