Domestic Delivery Service (DDS)

The Domestic Delivery Services (DDS) has awarded a new best value Blanket Purchase Agreement to UPS and FedEx, which will help you and your agency meet strategic goals and save money!

Specifically, the DDS solution enables agencies to:

  • Recognize a 16 - 26 percent discount over FY14 MAS benchmarks;
  • Avoid fuel surcharges on parcel shipments;
  • Streamline their acquisition process and reduce redundant contracts across the government;
  • Receive robust savings reports which can be used to demonstrate progress towards meeting OMB's savings targets;
  • Maintain best-in-class delivery service levels;
  • Minimize administrative overhead through use of a dedicated customer service team;
  • Manage inbound, outbound, and intra-agency shipments more efficiently; and
  • Implement commercial best practices for additional cost reductions.
