This project is to provide support to law enforcement agencies that may stand to benefit from the Surplus Property Program via the 1033/1122 national conference. In 1989, Congress amended the National Defense Authorization Act to permit the Secretary of Defense to transfer, without charge, excess DoD personal property (supplies and equipment) suitable for counterdrug activities to Federal, State and local law enforcement agencies. In 1995, the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) began administering the Surplus Property Program (1033/1122 program) in order to find ways to make the U. S. Department of Defense (DoD) excess property program better known and accessible to Federal, State, and local law enforcement agencies.
The 1033/1122 national conference brings together the state-appointed 1033 program coordinators for the purpose of improving efficiency in the management and operation of the 1033 and 1122 programs. Through this award, all interested and qualified 1033 and 1122 Coordinators and State Points of Contact will receive support for travel to the national conference, to include the reimbursement of authorized travel expenses (i.e., transportation, lodging, meals, and incidental expenses) in accordance with applicable General Services Administration guidelines. nca/ncf
