Firms that qualify as Automated Best Value System (ABVS) award winners have met the stringent quality and delivery requirements established by the Defense Logistics Agency. The ABVS, a computerized system, collects a vendor's past performance data and translates it into a numeric score, ranging from zero to 100.
To be eligible, vendors must have shipped 50 or more contract line items for DLA Land and Maritime during a 12-month period. To qualify for a Gold Award, a contractor must have a perfect score of 100. A score of 99 to 99.99 earns a Silver Award, and 98 to 98.9 earns a Bronze Award. WestWind received DLA's Silver Award.
