Log Management: DLA Price Challenge Request

BLUF: If an item seems overpriced, DLA will help you challenge that price.

PS Magazine's Cloe
PS Magazine's Cloe has the answer!

Dear Cloe,

I tried to order the AN/PSN-13A DAGR battery pack gasket, NSN 5331-01-521-0987, and the price is $158.63. That’s more than the entire battery pack! Is there any way to issue a price challenge?


Dear Sergeant C.T.,

That’s a great question because it permits us to spotlight a Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) service that’s not well known.

The quick answer is, yes. DLA can help you start a price challenge.

You’ll need your CAC to access and complete a DLA Price Challenge (PC) request, found HERE.

The request also allows you to submit suggestions and questions about procurement actions or pricing.
