Defense Logistics Agency (DLA)
As America's combat logistics support agency, the DLA provides military branches, federal agencies, and combined and allied forces with the full spectrum of logistics, acquisition and technical services. The agency sources and provides nearly 100 percent of the consumable items America's military forces need to operate. These items include food, fuel and energy, as well as uniforms, medical supplies and construction and barrier equipment. As a result, DLA actively works with military branches, federal agencies and contractors to identify and stop the procurement of non-standard and counterfeit items through its partnership with the IPR Center, diligent contracting enforcement, audits and investigations.
