Minuteman Trucks, Inc. was recently honored by DLA Land and Maritime, Columbus, Ohio, as one of the government’s best suppliers at an award ceremony held November 15, 2013, on the Defense Supply Center Columbus OH installation.
This recognition means Minuteman has supplied a product the government can be confident using. Those products are commercial and military truck chassis and engine parts for the Department of Defense and other agencies.
Firms that qualify as Automated Best Value System award winners have met the stringent quality and delivery requirements established by the Defense Logistics Agency. The ABVS, a 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 50 or more contract line items during a 12-month period. To qualify for a Gold Award, a contractor must have a perfect score of 100. A score of 99 to 99.99 earns a Silver Award, and 98 to 98.9 earns a Bronze Award.
Minuteman fell in the 98 to 98.9 category earning the Bronze Award and was one of 199 firms who attained an exemplary level of contract performance during 2012.
