Technical Data Packages (TDP)

 

Technical Data Packages (TDPs) are linked to the applicable “open” solicitations and can be viewed online or you may be able to request a CD by clicking on the “TECH DATA PACKAGE” ICON on the specific solicitation your interested in. This will take your browser to 1) a listing of available drawings (in C4 format) and the TDP Listing (TDPL) in PDF format if coded for “Distribution A” and/or 2) a link to request a CD of the TDP if coded otherwise.

NOTE: Only TDPs coded as Distribution Code A are viewable online and when the TDP contains sensitive data, it cannot be freely distributed. In order to view restricted TDP, you must request that a CD be mailed to you using an on-line process associated with the solicitation being advertised.

To view the C4 images, you must have the latest version of the TDP Imager software loaded on your personal computer. This software is available also from our web site
