HIGH MARKS FOR CAR BARRIER.

Byline: Daily News

VALENCIA - Vehicle barrier manufacturer Delta Scientific said it received an ``outstanding'' vendor rating from the Government Services Administration.

The GSA negotiates contracts between vendors and the U.S. government so that any federal agency can directly purchase products and services at pre-negotiated terms and pricing.

Delta has supplied more than $54 million worth of equipment to the federal government via the program.

``Our GSA contract permits U.S. agencies to make direct purchases of Delta's counterterrorist products in a timely manner, enabling them to better protect our nation's infrastructure and U.S. troops overseas,'' said Delta Scientific Senior Vice President David Dickinson. ``We are pleased to report that, after completing an on-site audit of our business practices and contract management, the GSA has given Delta a rating of Outstanding.''

Vendors in the program are evaluated based on several factors, including on-time delivery of products, living up to warranty terms, compliance with the Trade Agreement Act, compliance with the scope of their contracts, maintaining current approved price lists, and ensuring that prices listed in the GSA Advantage! program match those on the current approved price list.

Delta has supplied counterterrorist barricade systems to more than 160 U.S. embassies and consulates in 130-plus countries as well as for embassies of the United Kingdom and other nations.

In the United States, Delta barricades are at more than 110 federal buildings, including courthouses and FBI locations. More than 85 percent of all U.S. nuclear power plants are protected by Delta vehicle barricade systems.

Delta Scientific systems also protect high-rises, Singapore's parliament, European castles and homes in Beverly Hills.

Delta Scientific Corporation has its headquarters in Valencia and a manufacturing plant in Palmdale. The company makes vehicle-barricade systems, parking-control equipment and guard booths.
