The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Internet Bid Board System (DIBBS) provides automated access to 85% of DLA’s solicitations, which support America’s combat logistics, including nearly 100 percent of consumable items including food, fuel and energy, uniforms, medical supplies, construction and barrier equipment, and more than 85 percent of the military’s spare parts.  Being knowledgeable about DIBBS will allow your company to access more business opportunities, making it easier to submit quotes, view and download drawings, and compete for long term contract opportunities.
