DLA, We Have a Problem

On a monthly basis the DLA publishes a list of Unawarded Solicitations (no-bids). A recent list contains 5,568 items across a variety of FSC Codes. Parts Life did a deep dive on these parts and identified three reasons why industry is not bidding.

A previous paper discussed the first issue - LOW VOLUME. This 2nd paper in the series addresses SOURCE CONTROLLED items. Over 91% of no-bid NSNs are Source Controlled, meaning only previously approved sources may bid. Government and Industry must work together to resolve these issues, address DMSMS, and increase asset readiness!
