What We Do
The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), a component of the U.S. Department of Defense has launched a new requirement that defense contractors provide items that have been marked with botanically-generated DNA produced by Applied DNA Sciences or its authorized licensees.
DNA marking must begin on items falling within Federal Supply Class (FSC) 5962, Electronic Microcircuits, which have been determined to be at high risk for counterfeiting.
The Defense Logistics Agency will subsidize ADNAS’ SigNature® DNA marking for defense suppliers who provide designated high-reliability electronics to the Agency. The announcement, published as an “Update” on the DLA Bid Board System (DIBBS) web site on January 24, 2013, also emphasized that “effective immediately, only trusted sources who comply with Deoxyribonucleic Acid marking requirement in DLAD 52.11-9074 are eligible to receive FSC 5962 awards from DLA. There are no exceptions.”
Defense Suppliers: Please follow the links on this page to learn more about the DLA mandate for microcircuits.
DNA marking must begin on items falling within Federal Supply Class (FSC) 5962, Electronic Microcircuits, which have been determined to be at high risk for counterfeiting. A new clause at Defense Logistics Acquisition Directive (DLAD) 52.211-9074, Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) Marking on High Risk Items, will be included in new solicitations and contracts for FSC 5962 items when the item description states that the item requires DNA marking.
