  Annotation: This manual explains the programs by which State and local law enforcement agencies can obtain excess, surplus, and foreign excess personal Federal property and equipment from the Department of Defense (DOD) and the General Services Administration at little or no cost.
Abstract: The Section 1208 program began in 1989 to permit the Secretary of Defense to transfer to drug law enforcement agencies, without charge, excess DOD supplies and equipment suitable for use in counterdrug activities. The Secretary transferred a wide variety of equipment, vehicles, and aircraft suitable for use in counterdrug activities. The 1033 program superseded the 1208 program in 1996 and permits the Secretary of Defense to transfer excess DOD personal property for any law enforcement activities. Another source of surplus Federal personal property for State and local governments that has existed for 50 years is the General Services Administration donation program. It is administered by State Agencies for Surplus Property. The third source of Federal personal property is the 1122 program, through which police agencies can purchase supplies and equipment for counternarcotics activities from DOD and GSA stocks and suppliers.
