Electronic Data Access (EDA) - Overview
 

What is EDA?


The Electronic Data Access (EDA) program is one of the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Sourcing Environment programs. EDA supports the goals of the DLA to simplify and standardize the methods that DoD uses to interact with commercial and government suppliers in the acquisition of catalog, stock, as well as made-to-order and engineer-to-order goods and services initiatives to increase the application of Electronic Business/Electronic Commerce (EB/EC) across the Department of Defense (DoD). The EDA is a web-based system that provides secure online access, storage, and retrieval of Contracts, Contract modifications, Government Bills of Lading (GBLs), and Contract Deficiency Reports to authorized users throughout the DoD.
