WAWF Invoicing of DLA EDI Purchase Order

DLA Order Processing Solution

The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) provides vendors with electronic versions of their purchase orders in order to speed and simplify processing.   These electronic (DLA EDI-850) purchase orders practically eliminate all data entry that would be required for:

  • WAWF Invoice Creation
  • Mil-Std-129 Labeling
  • VSM Shipping Authorization
  • Mil-Std-2073 Packaging

MIL-Comply is a powerful, integrated tool that simplifies shipping to DLA.  Everything works off of one set of data, whether it comes from DLA, your business system, or is hand entered.

All of the data required for A WAWF invoice is present in the electronic purchase order. You simply need to add an invoice number (or have Comply/Shipper automatically generate one).

  1. Download DLA EDI 850 Purchase Order
    • Download Purchase Orders into MIL-Comply Shipper with our DOD-Certified VAN.
    • Purchase Order information is automatically imported and formatted, eliminating nearly all typing.
  2. Add Invoice Number
  3. Submit Invoice to WAWF with just a few mouse clicks
    • Logging into WAWF is eliminated!
    • Saves time and labor costs.
    • Accuracy is ensured by using DLA PO data.

DLA electronic purchase orders include most of the data needed for Mil-Std-129 labeling.  Using EDI data greatly reduces labeling time while helping to ensure accuracy. Shipments may be created from EDI-850 Purchase Orders in either Comply/Labeling or Comply/Shipper, depending on your preferred process flow, which can also include automated VSM shipment processing.

Electronic purchase order processing pre-populates most of the data you need for generating Mil-Std-129 container labels. This gets you most of the way to acheiving Vendor Shipment Module (VSM) Automation. Simply add container weights and dimensions while printing labels to receiving shipping instructions, including small parcel labels, without needing to go onto the DLA VSM website.

Mil-Std-2073 packaging codes are often included in the electronic (EDI) purchase order. MIL-Comply automatically stores them so that you can use Comply/Pack to generate a packaging breakdown worksheet to guide packaging.
