  1. After searching a bit more this is what i also figured out. I think the attached clause b.2 is related to the similar situations.
  2. The contract officer replied and told me that i should submit a PAR and wait for the reply from the product specialist. I hope i can get a reply within this year 🤭
  3. Yes it's a DLA order. I've already contacted the contract administrator and waiting for a reply. But yet i wanted to obtain a supporting info in case they don't get back to me.
  4. Hi everybody. I need some help with my DLA contract. The contract requires mil-std-130n identification marking of us military property. I've read the whole mil-std-130 document but still confused about what to do. The drawing says "identify iaw mil-std-130 except do not apply part number to part." Nothing else. The drawing note is attached as image for your review. My questions: 1) If i should not apply part number on the part, what else should i do to comply with mil-std-130? Does it mean apply part number to a label, tag, plate and then fasten it to the item or apply the part number to the unit pack? 2) which data should i apply? Is only the part number enough or both mfr cage and part number must be applied together? Is NSN also required with cage and PIN? The drawing doesn't specify anything about cage number or nsn. 3) We are the dealer not the actual manufacturer. The actual mfr manufactures the items for us and we sell it to dla. So should i apply our cage or the manufacturer's cage? I've been reading so many documents regarding mil-std-130 and all these info made me so confused. Any help would be so appreciated. Thanks for reading.
  5. Yes the contract has FAR 52.246-15 and i’ve read it but couldn’t understand how to deliver the certificate. But your reply made it clear. Thank you.
  6. Hi, Our DLA contract requires the certificate of conformance. I know how to write it but have no clue about what to do afterwards. Will i attach the signed and scanned certificate to the invoice at the wawf website or should i put it to the shipping box? Searched a lot but found nothing about the process. Just wanted to make sure to avoid any mistakes. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks a lot in advance.
  7. This is an important point you’ve mentioned. I wouldn’t like to get involved in a situation regarding violation or faulty items. Choosing the dealer option seems to be the most reasonable way. DLA might claim that i’m not the actual manufacturer but they can’t do the same thing for being a dealer.
  8. If Walsh Healey doesn’t apply for commercial items and the items i’m submitting quotes for are commercial items, how am i being considered a broker? I didn’t get it.
  9. 331315 and 332722 are the two naics codes i usually quote for which are also listed for my company on SAM. There are some solicitations where a trademark or name of the manufacturer should be stamped on products but i haven’t received that type of contract yet.
  10. I think you misunderstood me. My company has a cage code. Actually i’m working as a regular viable company with all required registrations including cage, duns, ein etc. The problem is my company is working as a supplier. I find the material, buy it and then give it to the manufacturer located overseas to produce the items. The only difference between my company and a regular manufacturer is i don’t have my own facility but use other manufacturers as subcontractors (which is allowed by the contracts) All products are %100 compatible with drawings, specs and quality required by the contract. Also, i have professional craftsmen and quality control staff working for me. My confusion is, can i -as a supplier- be considered a manufacturer since i buy all materials and hire a subcontractor to produce stuff. If not i must bid as a dealer but İ’m also not a dealer because i don’t buy a pre-manufactured product from a company to sell. Yes, the subcontractor is the manufacturer but there are no products readily available until i want them to make. Since there’s no option to bid as a supplier, i don’t know which of the two options are suitable for me. Normally my company gives manufacturing and supply service to non-government regular customers. But this is DoD and things work different i guess. PS: I’m not asking these questions regarding small business set-asides. I know everything must be domestic if it’s a set-aside. I’m competing for non set-aside solicitations only.
  11. I don’t think that PCA applies because they are all commercial items. My sector is fabricated metal products like bolts, nuts, washers etc. And no i don’t over-rely on your posts. Just want to get various aspects from all who wants to participate. Learning new stuff is always fun. Thank you all for spending your valuable time to reply my questions. I appreciate your help.
  12. Joel they’re all commercial items. Available on the market sold by various manufacturers or allowed to be manufactured from scratch.
  13. I’m confused, too I bid for dla non set-aside solicitations and if i get the award, i give the product specs to the manufacturer to produce the items and then ship the items to the destination. No problem with this part. Everything is within the scope of dla master solicitation. There are no pre-manufactured items to buy and sell. They’re made upon my request, based on the specs cited in the contract. The manufacturer works as a subcontractor (as stated in the contract). I may be wrong but that’s why i say i’m not a dealer. And according to the posts above i’m not a manufacturer either because i don’t have a manufacturing facility. There’s no clear definition regarding this situation.
  14. That’s what i want to know. I may be wrong but i don’t think that i’m a dealer also because i don’t buy the products from the manufacturer and then sell them. I give them the specs and they produce the items for me. I don’t want to make a mistake and get into trouble. That’s why i’ve asked which option i should select.
