Value engineering savings
Clothing & Textiles VE savings are the result of changes offered by our valued contractors and those submitted by supply chain personnel. Contractors submit value engineering change proposals (VECPs) which recommend cost savings changes to their contracts. Government personnel submit value engineering proposals (VEPs) which recommend cost savings changes to DLA Troop Support systems, equipment, facilities, procedures and supplies.
