The DLA is a logistics combat support organization whose mission is to provide the best value logistics and contract management support to America's Armed Forces around the clock and around the world.
Today, DLA manages more than 5 million consumable items and processes more than 30 million annual distribution actions from three inventory control points in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Columbus, Ohio, and Richmond, Virginia.

Powered by a suite of leading commercial off-the-shelf technology solutions, IDE is a complete integration engine that addresses business processes, data strategy, operations and technologies. IDE drives an integrated services network that manages requisitions and updates, inventory searches and allocations, status inquiries, vendor communication, shipment processing and business transaction.
