Defense Logistics Agency Disposition Services, formerly known as Defense Reutilization and Marketing Service, a field activity of the Defense Logistics Agency, should be your first source of supply. Any equipment located on its website can be obtained and shipped to Department of Defense activities at no cost to your command to include shipping.
DoD activities are saving millions of dollars every year through the DLA Disposition Services “Reutilization Program.” From routine supply requirements to specialized equipment, a wealth of excess, “ready-to- reuse” property is received daily by DLA Disposition Services. By taking advantage of their Reutilization Program, DoD activities can reduce procurement costs and eliminate unnecessary repair dollars. Every dollar’s worth of property reutilized is a supply dollar saved.
Staff also provides the DoD best value services and delivers great performance to customers for the reuse, transfer, donation, sale or disposal of excess/surplus property. Marine units from around the world have taken advantage and reutilized DoD excess property. In the first two quarters of fiscal year 2012 more than $20 million worth of property has been reutilized back to the Marines.
