Product Quality Deficiency Reports (PQDR)
*Use PDREP to find the status of a PQDR
DLA customers may check PQDR status using NAVSEA's Product Data Reporting and Evaluation Program (PDREP), which is queried using a web-based interface. You will be required to apply for User Access from the PDREP Home Page. Log-in to PDREP using the account that NLSC Portsmouth gives you; after PDREP opens, select the "PQDR Search" link which is towards the bottom on the left side menu. You will first be prompted to search by the RCN number; if you don't know it, select "NIIN/Contract Search". From that screen you can search by vendor CAGE, NIIN, Contract #, or even Part Number. Note the default date range is the last three years; you may have to change the beginning date if your PQDR still isn't found. DLA Vendors may also apply for PDREP access to see their own information only; see the PDREP homepage for application requirements and instructions.
