YOKOSUKA, Japan (NNS) -- Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Far East led NAVFAC worldwide in EMALL sales each quarter during fiscal year 2009, generating a total of 3,367 orders and approximately $13.8 million in sales.
EMALL is an Internet-based electronic mall enabling authorized military and government customers to search for and order items and services from government and commercial sources. It contains more than 1,450 commercial catalogs offering 32 million items, and is a Department of Defense program operated by the Defense Logistics Agency.
"NAVFAC Far East continues to lead the way in EMALL usage...because both our customers and our acquisition team are satisfied with the simplified and streamlined process for ordering services," said Product Line Coordinator Kim Granville. "Our goal for 2010 is to continue our upward sales trend, while ensuring all customers and contractors remain cognizant of our high safety standards."
NAVFAC Far East uses EMALL to offer various facilities service contracts to its customers throughout the Far East. Most orders are placed for change of occupancy maintenance, industrial waste collection and disposal, environmental testing services, and furniture delivery services.
"NAVFAC Far East would not be able to achieve this success without the day-to-day program support of Contract/Procurement Advisor Hisako Urashima," said Granville. "She has been instrumental in handling both contractor and catalog issues."
EMALL makes it simple. Customers interested in using it simply need a permission code letter to enable access to available NAVFAC Far East contracts, and a government purchase card to buy the services.
