1. THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMITTING END OF YEAR (EOY) ORDERS THROUGH DLA’S TLSP CONTRACTS IS EARLIER THAN LAST YEAR.
It’s all too common for government entities to reach a use it or lose it period toward the end of the fiscal year. This is a pertinent time for buyers to determine any outstanding requirements and submit them to their contracting office for approval.
For customers, this means NOW is the time to start gathering any last minute purchasing requirements. See Diagram A – TLSP Procurement Vehicles for additional information regarding order processing as it pertains to the FESE and SOE programs.
Submission Date: All TLS orders must be submitted to DLA by September 8, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. Funding must be in by September 22 at 11:59 p.m. Any orders with Fiscal Year (FY) 17 funds submitted past that timeframe will be returned to the submitter. Any orders received after that timeframe will be processed as FY18 funds.
