Registering in DLA/DIBBS and Status Check

In order to bid on most solicitations, you will use the electronic submission (bid board) utility located on the DLA/DIBBS site. Each user must register individually under the CAGE code of their company. Because a DLA/DIBBS registration gives that person the ability to submit a binding bid to the government on behalf of their company, registration is carefully controlled. The person that initially registers themselves under the company CAGE code, is designated by DLA as the Super User. That person must approve anyone else that wants to register under your company CAGE code.

If you know your user name and password for DLA/DIBBS, go to the DLA/DIBBS home page and click the Log In button in far upper right of the homepage. Enter your credentials. If they are accepted, then you have positively confirmed your access to the DLA/DIBBS bid system. Because DLA/DIBBS requires you change your password every 60 days, it is quite possible the site may prompt you to enter an new password. The password requirements for DLA/DIBBS are extensive and include using a minimum of 15 characters.

IMPORTANT: DLA passwords are a major hassle. Click here for detailed help.

If you are unable to log in, you can check to determine if your company is registered in DLA/DIBBS and who the Super User is by going to the DLA/DIBBS registration site here. Enter your CAGE code, click Next and the resulting screen will tell you if the company is registered with DLA/DIBBS and who the Super User is. As a result of this check, you will likely find that one of three conditions exist. Find the one that is appropriate and follow the instructions.

If there is no previous registration in DLA/DIBBS from anyone in your company:
  1. Your company must be registered in SAM first and you must have a SAM registration.
