“Following the successful delivery of all PPE orders in support of the DLA’s response to COVID-19, the Afghan Support BPA further validates our contracting infrastructure and demonstrates Unifire capabilities as a provider of government solutions, including disaster response,” said Skip Church, President of Unifire. “We are actively working on supplementing the items under both BPA’s and maximizing our potential to earn new revenues.”

“Unifire’s proven history of quality items delivery, extensive product inventory, and capacity at rapidly sourcing needed items with our robust vendor relations continue to make us stand out amongst our peers in the government contracting process,” said Buck Marshall, President and CEO of Mission Ready. “The two currently active BPA’s showcase the Company’s ability to quickly react to meet time-sensitive government procurements requirements, and we are grateful for the DLA’s continued confidence in our ability to provide them with the products they need, when they need them.” Mr. Marshall continues “Given DLA’s evolving requirements in support of the Afghan Refugees – and the nature of Blanket Purchase Agreements generally – minimum, estimated and maximum dollars values are not provided to the awardee(s) within the BPA. As such, we are unable to provide an accurate estimate as to the frequency, volume or value of delivery orders we may receive on the BPA during the 1 year term or any extension thereof.”
