Last fall, Ronald Inman of Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Public Affairs reports that the NAVFAC Far East command generated a total of 3,367 orders and approximately $13.8 million in sales on DOD EMALL in fiscal year 2009 — more than any other NAVFAC command.
The DOD EMALL is a web-based Government eCommerce site enabling authorized military and government customers to search for and order products and services from a global community of government and commercial vendors. Operated on behalf of the Defense Logistics Agency, the DOD EMALL contains over 2,000 commercial catalogs offering nearly 70 million items.
NAVFAC Far East is based in Yokosuka, Japan — nearly halfway around the globe from the DOD EMALL’s home in Ogden, UT. Partnet keeps the DOD EMALL applications running smoothly — 24 X 7, 365 days a year. Over the last year, Partnet maintained system uptime at 99.75%. Without high system availability, NAVFAC would have been relegated to slower, less efficient forms of procurement.
