Federal Property Assistance
Federal Property Assistance (FPA) acquires and distributes U.S. Department of Defense and federally owned tangible personal property declared excess/surplus by the military and federal government. This property is allocated to the State of Florida for the benefit of state and local law enforcement, public agencies and private/nonprofit health and education organizations. FPA reviews available assets, physically on-site, at military and federal civilian agency holding depots. The program uses web-accessible surplus/excess databases of the U.S. General Services Administration (USGSA) and the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency.
The program enables agencies to have equipment they may otherwise not have the resources to purchase. The acquisition of federal surplus property and equipment by eligible organizations results in sizable cost avoidance in asset procurement, which saves tax dollars.

Federal Surplus Property Donation: History & Certification

It has been in operation under various forms of leadership since 1945.
The FLSASP was created and exists as a wholly self-supporting organization for the specific purpose of serving as a procurement and distribution organization. It enables eligible tax-supported public agencies and nonprofit educational and health agencies in Florida, to take advantage of the opportunities provided by various Acts of Congress, to secure on a donation basis, valuable surplus federal property.
The basic policies adopted by the FLSASP establishes objectives contributing in every way possible to:
The Education of our Youth The Health of our People The Development of our State The Saving of Tax Dollars
The decision as to eligibility of an institution is determined after careful consideration of all pertinent facts presented in writing and, if necessary, by personal inspection of the organization's facilities.
After an organization has been certified for participation, authorized representatives visit the distribution centers and select the property they can properly use in their program. Under no condition can property be made available to individuals or for individual personal use. To determine that the property is utilized properly, according to the intent of the law, periodic inspections are made by the FLSASP.
