GSA Region 4 Assists U.S. Marine Corps Resolve Acquisition Challenge
February 26, 2013
When the U.S. Marine Corps at Cherry Point, NC could not find an effective and safe cleaning solution to clean the windshields of its V-22 Osprey helicopter after months of searching, they turned to GSA for help. GSA Region 4 Customer Service Director (CSD) Dale Terry from Camp Lejeune, NC helped the Marines obtain a national stock number (NSN) for an effective cleaning wipes solution that they identified to meet their cleaning requirements for the V-22 Osprey helicopter. The association of a NSN with the cleaning wipes makes the procurement of the cleaning wipes much easier for the Marines at Cherry Point and enables consistency with their procurement practices and procedures.
