FY21 USACE Uniform Purchase Suspension
I apologize for continuing challenges with the uniform program but as of today the purchase of uniforms for USACE employees will be suspended. We just recently received notice that uniform orders will exceed contract funding as orders far exceeded earlier projections provided by the uniform contractor.
The ordering deadline was originally set to expire on 24-September, ending the uniform purchases approximately a month before the deadline. We are continuing to work with National Park Service and the Uniform Contractor to explore all options to resume service for FY21 but until that time new uniform purchases will be suspended. At this time the uniform ordering website www.vfsoultions.com/lma, will no longer process orders.
We will continue to work through all possible solutions to resolve this issue but if this is not able to be resolved by the 24-September deadline, we will work with the uniform contractor on options to credit uniform users balances to their FY 22 allowance.
I will keep you updated on any progress on this issue and the FY22 ordering process.
