DLA changed WebFLIS® In June 2015
New FED LOG® is Here! and the US Government have now trademarked it

Originally scheduled for June 2014, and then November, 2014, the changes to WebFLIS® have finally been effected as of June 17th, 2015

The WebFLIS® Change affects users as follows:

Users of Public WebFLIS® will no longer be able to access FLIS information via WebFLIS® and instead will have to request Public data using the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) or by visiting the FOIA Reading Room via a searchable product called PUB LOG FLIS Search. The DLA has provided a link to PUB LOG FLIS Search and instructions now that it is available so users can use this method following this transition of Public WebFLIS®.

While this change affects public users of WebFLIS®, official users will enjoy new features and benefits of WebFLIS® once they have been granted access through AMPS.

From now on, WebFLis® will only be accessible by controlled access such as Common Access Card (CAC) or External Certificate Authority (ECA). Current registered users will need to register/obtain roles through the Access Management and Provisioning System (AMPS)."

The future source for public Federal Logistics Information System (FLIS) data is the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) reading room via an application called Public Logistics (PUB LOG) FLIS Search . PUB LOG FLIS search is now available at this site. Instructions for use of PUB LOG FLIS Search are provided in the FOIA reading room. We encourage non-CAC customers to access and utilize the PUB LOG FLIS Search and provide feedback.

Public users who developed an automated process to query and download multiple items of supply from Public WebFLIS® will not be able to retain this type of capability with PUB LOG FLIS Search. Since customers will be required to input a Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart (CAPTCHA) when using PUB LOG FLIS Search, automated search processes will be restricted. When using PUB LOG FLIS Search, the customer can view or download National Stock Numbers (NSNs), National Item Identification Numbers (NIINs), or a limited number of multiple part numbers within a single query.

Authorized-DOD and DOD-Sponsored customers, who require larger volumes of information on a reoccurring basis, can obtain the information via a service from the FLIS Portfolio Data Warehouse. This is not intended for a one-time pull of data. This requires a system-to-system web service connection and data is delivered in XML format.
