Bulk Fuel (Direct Delivery Fuels)

Direct Delivery Fuels Solution (DDFS) provides worldwide acquisition and integrated material management of commercial fuels delivered by vendors directly to US Government and other authorized locations. This includes the procurement of commercial specification aviation fuel at commercial airports, commercial ship propulsion fuels at commercial seaports and commercial ground fuels (diesel, gasoline and "green" products) at posts, camps and stations worldwide. Direct Delivery Fuels Solution also supports short-notice provisioning of fuel for humanitarian relief efforts and worldwide contingency operations.

Under the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Defense Logistics Agency dated March 29, 2010, federal agencies are able to procure four item classes of products and services, including “Petroleum, Oil, Lubricants (POL) and Fuels”.  On June 7, 2012, the DHS Strategic Sourcing Program Office (SSPO), in conjunction with the Office of Chief Readiness Support Officer (OCRSO), established a Department-wide Bulk Fuel Inter-Agency Agreement (IAA). This agreement between DHS and the Defense Logistics Agency – Energy (DLA-E) allows non-military Components (USCG exempt as war-fighter discount rates exceed that of other civilian agencies) to purchase bulk fuel from DLA-E in the four item classes.  Using an IAA, DHS components will issue their annual bulk fuel requirements and will receive bulk fuel at the DLA-E discounted rate.
