Federal Stock Code 5962 are Microcircuits — electronic components that go on green circuit boards that exist in most things electronic. FSC 5962 Microcircuits are one of the most likely FSCs in the federal supply chain to be counterfeited. In case you were not aware, there currently is a worldwide epidemic of counterfeit electronic components. In short, the e-waste we are recycling (things like computers, televisions, cell phones, etc.) is often shipped overseas to be salvaged and sent back to the supply chain as individual components. This pandemic has not only polluted the global supply chain, but also the US Military's supply chain. As my company is heavily involved in mitigating counterfeit components for its clients, I decided to write this post on the topic of the Defence Logistics Agency’s (DLA) QTSL Program. My role is to support the DLA and DoD buyers and engineers in supplying their hard to find parts. My company is qualified to supply these 5962 Microcircuits, and I often encounter folks within the DLA that are unsure of what the QTSL program is and how it works. I am hopeful that this post can offer insight to some of the questions and concerns they may be having.
