OM FUEL CANCELLATION CHANGES Oct 04, 2019
“NOTICE: Many foreign countries prohibit ordered fuel to be returned to the terminal from which it was ordered. Any Request for Quote (“RFQ”) that is AWARDED and then you CANCEL in a foreign country will result in ancillary (backhaul/cancellation) charges. DLA Energy is not responsible for any ancillary or associated charges incurred from a customer’s cancellation of an award.
When applicable, it is your responsibility to provide your Husbanding Service Provider (“HSP”) contact information to the Vendor immediately upon awarding a SEA Card® order.” For Navy customers, your ship’s operating target (OPTAR) funds will be charged all associated costs for cancelling the award, whether the fuel is taken or not.
NOTICE TO ALL SEA Card® OPEN MARKET OFFERORS: Aug 02, 2019

When submitting your quote, all offerors MUST upload a copy of fuel spec and FAME and Sulfur content for the product offered.
