Term -VPV

Virtual Prime Vendor is the natural evolution of Prime Vendor. Under Prime Vendor, DLA partners with a quality contractor to furnish a broad range of items in a particular commodity group over a given geographic area for direct vendor delivery to customers. Virtual Prime Vendor relies on integrated supply chains to address an even wider-spectrum of customer support needs and crosses traditional commodity lines. This mirrors industry developments and allows DLA to take advantage of state-of-the-art commercial business solutions and emerging technology to provide total logistics support for weapons systems. In short, the Virtual Prime Vendor’s job is to anticipate customer needs and have supplies or services immediately available when and where customer need arises.
