Roadmap for Selling to DLA Land and Maritime


    •     To do business with DLA, vendors need a D-U-N-S number from Dun and Bradstreet.

    •     Vendors must have a CAGE code. If you do not have a CAGE code, you must register your company with the System for Award Management (SAM) in order to do business with DLA.

    •     A financial account capable of receiving electronic funds transfers is a mandatory requirement, and is provided in the SAM registration.
