Federal Logistics Information System Web Inquiry (WebFLIS) Text Only Brochure

WebFLIS provides access to information essential for all logisticians - from engineers designing new weapons systems to property managers’ disposal of items. As a WebFLIS user, you will have access to the standard logistics information system in the Federal Government - the Federal Logistics Information System (FLIS).

FLIS forms the foundation for all logistics information systems and data elements of the National Stock Number (NSN). It is the catalog of more than sixteen million (7.1M active) Supply Items. WebFLIS provides users with historical data on a NSN, both active and inactive. User’s find WebFLIS a resourceful tool when trying to identify older supply items in order to turn into DLA Disposition Services for the appropriate demilitarization.

WebFLIS information is used primarily by DLA, military services, United States Government Entities, international partners and sponsored contractors doing business for the U.S. Government. Users of WebFLIS must register through Account Management and Provisioning System or AMPS and must have one of the following: (1) DOD CAC card, (2) External Certificate Authority (ECA), (3) Federal Bridge Certificate Authority (FBCA) or (4) Personal Identity Verification (PIV).

One of the biggest benefits of WebFLIS is that it provides logistics information not just for DOD, but for the entire federal government. The system is updated multiple times a day, making WebFLIS information more current than what might be found on commercial websites. Logistics professionals rely on accurate information from official data sources to ensure warfighters have the supplies they need to complete their mission. The most common and safest tool to ensure warfighters have what they need when they need it is WebFLIS.
