The TKO Session and Workshop are a set of free training classes on learning how to start and continue doing business with the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA).
The TKO program offers a two day seminar and a one day workshop. Vendors are welcome to participate in both sessions.
To ensure registration for the session of your choice and to alleviate possible scheduling conflicts, we encourage you
to register as early as possible. All sessions are held at DLA Land and Maritime, located in Columbus, Ohio.
The TKO Seminar is an introductory session on teaching vendors how to start doing business with the Defense
Logistics Agency. Vendors will be informed on how to find open solicitations, how to submit a quote through
the DLA Internet Bid Board System (DIBBS) quoting process, the procedures for viewing and downloading drawings, and how to use Wide Area
Workflow (WWAF) to get paid.
The TKO Workshop is geared for vendors that are currently doing business with DLA where topics of discussion are
Alternate Offers, Source Approval Requests, Breakout Program, and the Parts Purchase or Borrow Program.
Foreign National’s (FN’s) wishing to attend a session(s) must be sponsored by their host nation’s government or by an
international organization and have an official visit request submitted to DLA through their respective embassy or
international organization no later than 90 days prior to the session(s) they wish to attend. Please have your respective
embassy or international organization submit this Official Visit Request to the TKO office at DSCC.BCC@dla.mil.
