Federal Property Assistance

The Federal Property Assistance (FPA) surplus program was formed in 1965 under Florida Statutes Chapter 217, as amended. The FPA Program 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 eligible organizations. The acquisition of federal surplus property through Florida 1033 Program and State Agency for Surplus Property (SASP) results in sizable cost savings in asset procurement for law enforcement, public agencies and nonprofit organizations, which saves tax dollars.

 

Florida Law Enforcement Support Office (LESO)

The Florida Law Enforcement Support Office (LESO) also known as the Florida 1033 Program supports only law enforcement agencies. The Florida 1033 Program originated from the National Defense Authorization Act of 1997. This law allows transfer of excess Department of Defense property that might otherwise be destroyed to law enforcement agencies in the State of Florida.

The program uses web-accessible surplus/excess databases FEMPIS of the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency. The program enables law enforcement agencies to have equipment they may otherwise not have the resources to purchase.

State Agencies for Surplus Property (SASP) Program

The State Agency for Surplus Property Program (SASP) supports many different nonprofit organizations and public agencies which includes law enforcement. Law enforcement agencies are eligible for both programs. The SASP reviews available property, physically on-site, at military and federal holding agencies.

The program uses web-accessible surplus/excess databases specific to the Starke, FL warehouse inventory and GSAXcess of the U.S. General Services Administration.
