Downers Grove, IL – Upp Technology, a leading provider of information technology solutions nationwide, announced the extension of IT sub-contracts with the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA). A United States Department of Defense organization, the DLA provides supply support, technical and logistics services to the military, select Federal agencies, foreign governments, international organizations, and other civilian agencies.

Upp Technology has been working with the DLA's Defense Supply Center Richmond (DSCR), in Richmond, Virginia, to provide Map Mission support for America's War Fighters. The DSCR is the DLA's "lead center for aviation weapon systems and environmental logistics support," and the primary supply source for more than 1.3 million parts and operating supply items.

In praise of Upp Technology personnel on site, a DSCR Team Lead noted he is "thoroughly satisfied with...Upp’s people" and has "grown to confidently trust and rely upon their technical expertise."

Upp Technology consultants are working closely with the agency's Richmond Map Facility team to provide ongoing support for the Defense Mapping Agency Automated Distribution Management System (DADMS), used for electronic processing and distribution of geo-spatial information, maps and charts, from the National Imagery and Mapping Agency, or NIMA.

The company is working with other team members in the Richmond Map Facility to provide mission-critical infrastructure support, including upgrading and migrating systems, and installing new dual partition systems in both Richmond and at the DSCR’s remote disaster recovery center facilities. This includes moving as well as installation and configuration of hardware, software and extensive systems testing.

Simultaneously, the Upp Technology team is supporting the DLA's Business Systems Modernization initiative to better align enterprise systems with business goals. As part of the BSM, the team has been converting legacy applications into a more robust, customer-oriented, web-based solution on an Oracle back end. The new system will interface with SAP software for Order Fulfillment, Planning, and Procurement.
