Courtesy Sample Evaluations: Dress Clothing Only

For Dress Clothing items only, vendors can make a sample of an item and request a courtesy evaluation and/or request a specification for an item and pattern(s) to review and have technical questions addressed. These evaluations need to be requested well in advance of solicitation issuance, and cannot be requested/evaluated once a solicitation is issued. In addition, approved courtesy samples cannot be submitted as a product demonstration model (PDM) in response to a solicitation.  A separate sample shall be manufactured for the solicitation PDM submission. For Dress Uniform items (coats, trousers, slacks, skirts), requests for a list of upcoming solicitations and requests for courtesy evaluations can be directed to ashley.liddle@dla.mil. For dress outerwear, shirts and headwear items, requests can be directed to randall.mcarthur@dla.mil
