Special Operations Equipment (SOE)

The Construction and Equipment supply chain has logistics solutions for marine lifesaving and diving equipment, tactical gear, safety equipment, search and rescue equipment, personal protection gear, flight deck and flight crew safety items, and explosive ordnance equipment.

The Special Operational Equipment tailored logistics support program enables customers to order commercial, off-the-shelf part numbered items within the scope of the contract. Since multiple vendors are solicited for prices, customers benefit from a competitive business model that will ensure best value for the customer.

SOE Ordering Process

As of November 2015, the following ordering procedures took effect for the Special Operational Equipment (SOE) Tailored Logistics Support Program (TLSP). The three major changes are highlighted below:

1. You must have a Finance Office Point of Contact registered to your account in order to submit a request. If you have not registered a FOPOC for your account and need to do so, please use these instructions to complete the Customer Registration/BidWiser FOPOC Designation Form as needed. Customers will receive a hard stop notification upon initial order submission should a FOPOC not be registered.

2. All orders must now be UNFUNDED upon initial request to DLA Troop Support. We will no longer accept any method of funding up front. Column A of the Order Spreadsheet will no longer read R (Funded) or Q (Unfunded). This column will now be replaced with M (MIPR) or R (Requisition).

3. You and your registered FOPOC will receive a Price Acknowledgement Spreadsheet containing the proposed total price of your order(s). The FOPOC will complete this Price Acknowledgement Spreadsheet and, at that time, submit (with funding) to SOEPriceAcknowledge@dla.mil

The Excel SOE Order Spreadsheet and Customer Guidelines Document detail the ordering process. Please be sure to read this Customer Guidance Document prior to submitting your first order under this new process, and review the following documents:

1.  New Process Flow Chart
2.  MIPR Instructions
3.  Material Receipt Acknowledgement in FedMall

DLA remains committed to ensuring a seamless transition during this process change, and we look forward to your continued utilization of the SOE TLSP in the future.
