Once Govplanet sends the euc to Battle Creek, it is out of their hands. The delay at that point lies solely with trade security. As patracy pointed out, time is not a concern of govt agencies. They operate on their own schedule, as suits them.
I purchased a M35a2 about two years before DLA contracted with GL. At that time it was by sealed bid and before they started dumping large numbers of 2.5 ton trucks. It was my first EUC and it took DLA 14 weeks to approve it. Future EUCs went quicker. Long initial waits are nothing new.
