WASHINGTON, D.C. – The GSA (General Services Administration) issued the following press release late yesterday notifying customers that an item from the Global Supply Catalog is out of stock and experiencing long lead times:
NSN 6969-OU812-OOOH Flashlight, non-powered, is unavailable for order until adequate stock levels are restored.
Customer demand outstripped initial provisioning estimates and stock levels depleted within a matter of days for the single units as well as the pack of twelve. GSA stocks over a hundred different types of flashlights but this NSN has proven more popular than all other types combined. Orders have shipped all over the world with remote and deployed locations seeing higher demand.
GSA buyer analysts would like feedback from users as to why this particular NSN is preferable to the other flashlights in the system. You can contact a customer service representative or use the contact page on our website to provide your input.
We will notify customers once adequate stock levels are restored.
We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
