DLA Document Services

(Editor’s note: “SPOTLIGHT” is a continuing series about tenant activities and missions at Fort McCoy.)

What is it?
The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Document Services at Fort McCoy is one of 180 print shops that provide copy and binding support services to Department of Defense (DoD) organizations.

DLA Document Services is, according to DoD Instruction 5330.03, the single manager for printing services for DoD organizations. Organizations wishing to use alternative printing sources must obtain approval from DLA Document Services.

Prior to its designation as DLA Document Services in 2010, the organization operated under the name DLA Document Automation and Production Services.

DLA Document Services can print documents as large as 11-by-17 in-house and can accommodate larger projects through its Great Lakes location.

Copy and print services include black-and-white and color copies, manuals, tabs, booklets, pamphlets, brochures, and fliers.
Binding services include tape binds, comb binds, spiral binds, note padding, three-hole punch, and staple.

Paper options include lamination, card stock, colored paper, specialty paper and carbonless copy.

Any organization that has an established line of credit through a government credit card or a military interdepartmental purchase request can request services through DLA Document Services.

What have they done?
DLA Document Services has created many products for various organizations at Fort McCoy and throughout the U.S.
The organization’s most-recent larger projects include products for the 88th Regional Support Command’s Yellow Ribbon Campaign, the Wisconsin Military Academy’s Resiliency Training binders and the Civilian Personnel Advisory Center’s Human Resources for Supervisors manuals.

What do they have planned?
DLA Document Services is working to increase its customer base at Fort McCoy by continuing to provide excellent customer service, products and fast turnaround times. If enough customer need exists for a product that cannot be completed in-house because of equipment restrictions, DLA Document Services will work to acquire the equipment to satisfy those needs.

Why are they important?
DLA Document Services can provide products to customers on post with a short turnaround time at competitive prices. Customers can save time and money by having their products printed at Fort McCoy.

The office also allows for in-person interaction to ensure the customer is receiving the best-possible product.

Customers also do not need to submit print-ready products. The staff at DLA Document Services can consult with customers to design and create products that will best suit their needs.

To ensure the fastest turnaround time, customers can discuss projects with DLA Document Services staff ahead of time to discuss options that will benefit the customer.

DLA Document Services is located in building 1654 at Fort McCoy. For more information, call 608-388-2711.

Customers who want to place an order can obtain a DD Form 844, Requisition for Local Duplicating Service, through the Fort McCoy Corporate Network or at building 1654.
