BOHEMIA, NY - DTB has been awarded a new contract from the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) for component inspection and testing. This contract has a not-to-exceed ceiling of $5,062,500 and will run over the course of three years, with an option for two more.
“This is a great program for DTB to win, and we look forward to continuing our long-standing relationship with the DLA,” said Bill Bradshaw, Chief Engineer for Dayton T. Brown. “Our experience in this type of testing is unrivaled, and we are pleased to see that recognized with a new contract.”
The testing services to be performed on this contract are very similar to the current contract that DTB was awarded from the DLA in 2015. These testing services consist of such test programs as First Article Testing, Production Lot Testing, and other directed testing, such as investigations related to items that are the subject of Product Quality Deficiency Reports.
These efforts are used to evaluate the manufacturer's ability to conform to the requirements of the drawings and Technical Data Package, evaluate their manufacturing capability, and to ensure that DLA Land & Maritime receives parts that are acceptable and consistent in quality throughout the production run. Special tests may be required in order to evaluate specific problems, new developments, new materials, changes in processes, or to evaluate parts in stock, which may be suspect or of unknown quality.
DTB has been working closely with the Defense Logistics Agency and its predecessor organization for over 25 years. The work will principally be performed at DTB’s Bohemia, NY test facility.
