Firms that qualify as Automated Best Value System medalist have met stringent quality and delivery requirements established by the Defense Logistics Agency. The Automated Best value computerized system collects a vendor’s past performance data and translates it into a numeric score, ranging from zero to 100.

To be eligible, vendors must have shipped 10 or more contract lines for DSCR during a 12-month rating period. To qualify for a gold medal, a contractor must have a score of 100. Those who receive a score of 99.0 to 99.9 receive a silver award. Vendors with scores ranging from 98.0 to 98.9 earn a bronze medal. In addition, vendors must have a DLA rating of 95 or better.

In October 2004, DSCR became the Defense Logistic Agency’s aviation supply and demand chain manager. With this expanded responsibility, DSCR serves within the Department of Defense supply-chain as the primary source of supply for more than 1.2 million repair parts and operating supply items, with a core mission of supplying product with direct application to aviation.
