Next, it is available to Federal Agencies, followed by State Agencies before released for Sale.Property not requested by RTD customers is reviewed for sales eligibility. Items not “safe for sale” are destroyed.

We created a Verification Branch at HQ DLA DS and Controlled Property Locations in the field.The Verification Branch is responsible for reviewing property before it is offered for sale (verify Demil A/Q6 only), and again when offered on the re-sale contractors web site; the objective is to prevent government-sensitive or controlled property from being released to the public. (Our focus is on analyzing the accuracy of the Demil code assigned to each National Stock Number (NSN) in the DLA Disposition Services inventory and maintaining the controlled property business rules within DSS/EBS for F-14 (common/unique), NWRM, military camo uniforms, body armor, NBC defense equipment and many other categories of controlled property.)We continuously look for ways to strengthen the verification process. (Recent improvements include: strengthening the NSN review by moving it further up in the disposal process (at receipt, prior to RTD/S), created an internal tracking tool for NSNs already reviewed (saving time, to date we have reviewed over 1.4 million unique NSNs), and also reviewing NSNs that have been downgraded to scrap at the field sites.)Ensuring the safe release of propertyControlled Property Verification Office (CPVO)Demil code accuracyReview before and after salesMaintain automated toolsResearch batch/LSN propertyIdentify NSNsVerify Demil codeApply Demil / Trade Security ControlsImpactPrevent release of controlled property to the PublicProvides more effective dispositionIncreased reutilizationControlled Property Branch (CPB)

Tucson, AZ our largest site, performs 78% of our Demil followed by sites in Anniston, AL and McAlester, OK.In the fall of 2012 DLA redirected some demil required property to Pine Bluff AR. giving some relief to Tucson, Anniston and McAlester by geographic location. DLA has seen a large amount of demil required property returning from AOR for disposal. DLA Disposition Services is working on many cost saving initiatives for disposal of demil property.

Predominantly, we deliver our services thru contracted partners and we go to great lengths to ensure that we do business with environmentally responsible and compliant contractors.Minimizing potential future environmental liabilities is important for DLA. So, we thoroughly vet prospective HM buyers prior to award by checking with regulatory authorities and sending our field environmental protection specialists on-site. Additionally, we perform annual revalidations after award.Nearly 200M pounds of hazardous and solid wastes are recycled, treated or disposed of annually - thru our network of 80+ HW management and disposal contracts supporting DOD activities worldwide. Additionally, our contractors provide a great deal of support on-site performing such services as waste collection and storage facility operation. Like the HM sales processes discussed previously, we have robust quality control and quality assurance processes to ensure competent contractors are supporting the customer and delivering superior services. Disposition Services environmental and acquisition personnel around the world work diligently to develop, solicit, award and administer high quality contract solutions to the warfighter.
13 Customer Diversity and Engagement Engagement StrategiesExpand Customer Relationship Management (CRM) UsageCustomer Surveys (Quarterly)DLA Disp Svcs is unique in that we have a diverse customer base that reaches far beyond DOD and the Military Services. We also have Federal, State and Local Agencies, Sales buyers and HW contractors… to name a few.In FY12, we dove into the process of reinvigorating CRM. We now have 152 members in our “CRM Cadre”, including 45 employees from HQ BC and 107 from our various field locations both CONUS and OCONUS – all fully trained in CRM SVC400 (CRM Service). With full CRM Service deployment and training largely behind us, FY13’s focus will be to encourage increased use of the system and engage in deeper CRM Analytics in order to actually make use of the data being captured.We have now used the ICE system for Quarterly Customer Surveys for an entire fiscal year (FY12). We averaged a 14.5% response rate (Goal 16%), and an Overall satisfaction rating – of 94.5% (Goal 90%). We have received hundreds of written comments and have proactively responded to all ‘actionable’ comments – utilizing the CRM tool to do this. Comments were positive overall but reflected some areas where we could improve:Customers would like to see more photos of property on our websiteThere was some frustration with transportation delaysEDOCs copies not available in a timely mannerActions are being taken to improve in these areas and we plan to inform our customers of those actions so they know their voices have been heard.Some changes are being made to survey questions for FY13 utilizing lessons learned from FY12 and incorporating overall organizational changes as applicable. (We made no changes in FY12 in order to maintain consistency for yearly trends.)ICE Background: Interactive Customer Evaluation: A Web-based tool for collecting feedback about the services provided by DLA Disposition Services. The ICE system is hosted by OSD. Allowing customers to submit online survey. ICE allows service providers to collect customer satisfaction data in a standardized format which is stored in the ICE database. The Army uses ICE and, although DLA has not standardized ICE, it allows PLFAs to use it.Conducting Customer Outreach at the Marine South Expo, Camp LejeuneEngage with customers and external stakeholders to drive additional DLA support improvements worldwide … WS-3

The bars reflect total RTD issues as a percentage of overall dispositions. Our goal is 20% of dispositions are RTD’d.RTD % of Dispositions: FY 12, 20.2%The Reutilization, Transfer and Donation of excess property is one of our primary mission functions. It is our job to promote reuse by giving property visibility both at our field locations and on our website and through the development of tools that make it easy for our customers to order property from us while ensuring procedures are in place to prevent property from getting in the wrong hands.Reutilization customers are the military services, DLA, and other DOD agencies. (The top reutilization customer is Army. In FY11 we filled ~35K requisitions from Army customers for property with an original acquisition value of ~$830M.) We also have Special Programs that screen concurrently with DOD (based on US Code, Defense Appropriations Acts, or Presidential Executive Orders). The top SP customers are: Law Enforcement (68K LI), Firefighters (4K LI), and Foreign Military Sales (12K LI).Transfer customers are Federal Civil Agencies and fall under the control of GSA. (A few examples are: Department of Transportation, US Department of Commerce, Bureau of Indian Affairs, Department of Justice, and the US Department Fish and Wildlife.)Donation customers are State Agencies for Surplus Property and they also fall under the control of GSA. Customers in this group are State, county and city governments; schools; homeless shelters; and other non-profit agencies.
15 Law Enforcement Support Office ComplianceAccountabilityPartnershipCustomer Support: A Transfer of Function in October 2009 realigned the Law Enforcement Support Office from DLA HQ to Disposition Services. The program provides for DOD excess property to be transferred to Law Enforcement Agencies, with emphasis on supporting counter-drug and/or counter-terrorism activities. Since that time, this is a high visibility program, you may note a lot of Media and FOIA attention. The program has undergone an in depth bottom up program review. As a result, processes were streamlined, procedures standardized, metrics established and the MOA between DLA Disposition Services and Program Participants strengthened. However, the LESO program stats continue to increase. Program statistics are:FY10 27,001 line items $212.6M acq. valueFY11 40,757 line items $498.5M acq. valueFY12 86,122 line items $529.3M acq. valueFY13 (YTD) 36,532 line items $268,5M acq. ValueModernization: We deployed a new property accounting system, Federal Excess Property Management System (FEPMIS). The system was developed by IBM and currently used by the US Forest Service. FEPMIS will increase accountability and automation of property being issued.Program Compliance The LESO is required by regulation to visit each state once every 2 years to conduct Program Compliance Reviews, which requires a significant amount of time on the road, visiting State Coordinators and Law Enforcement Agencies – conducting inventories, checking records, training customers and verifying compliance with the MOA. LESO is on track to complete 28 PCRs in FY13.National Partnership: We brief at various law enforcement events such as the Airborne Law Enforcement Association, the National Sheriff’s Association, we are members for both the Navy and Air Force Strike Boards, etc. These evens afford us the opportunity to share what the LESO program is about, the rules, training to customers and knowledge of types of property to be excessed in the future (example aircraft to be retired).Areas of Risk: Property Accountability and Program ComplianceCustomer SupportIncreasing efficiency … improving reliability…focus on accountabilityIncreasing requisitions filledSupporting Counter-Drug/Counter-TerrorismStandardization & ModernizationImproving processes and proceduresDeployed a new property accounting systemProgram ComplianceConducting program compliance IAW regulatory guidanceInitiating investigations, suspensions & terminationsNational Strategic PartnershipFostering active interagency relationshipsPartnering with National Law Enforcement

Items ranged from HMMWVs for disaster search and rescue efforts to generators and a few field kitchens. Most the requisitions were LESO customers for vehicles. We were even able to provide the Police Department of Rye NY with a Crane, with original acquisition value of $210K, to help remove debris. These vehicles helped rescue 64 people during the storm surge.7 DOD requisitions51 LESO requisitions269 items$3.5M acq. value
17 Sales Program Term and One Time FY 13 Thru July - $85.9M Revenue CONUS Usable and Scrap propertyHazardous MaterialDEMIL as condition of saleOCONUS and Central (SWA) salesThrough 31 July, FY13 Sales are already 24.57M over FY13 PlanProperty not requisitioned during RTD may be eligible for sales. All items are reviewed and only those that are determined to be 'safe to sell' are sold. Sales are conducted on either a term or one-time basis.The majority of property sold in CONUS is done using two long-term contracts: Commercial Venture (CV) and Scrap Venture (SV). These contracts were competitively awarded and are held by the same parent organization: Liquidity Services. Government Liquidation (GL) has our Usable Commercial Venture contract and DOD Surplus has the Scrap Venture contract. The photo on right shows DOD Surplus receiving the DLA Business Alliance Award in the category of "Recognized Cost Saver“ in July As part of our Scrap Sales program, we sell qualified recyclable materials and provide military installations with proceeds reimbursement to help defray the costs of environmental, safety and health, and MWR programs. Last year we returned $30M in QRP proceeds to the Services, YTD we are at 28.74M.One-time sales are used for a specific item and quantity on hand. Hazardous material sales are a good example of when we use a one-time sale. We sell things like paint, cleaners and solvents. Revenue from HM sales was approximately $3M with the added benefit of a disposal cost avoidance to the Military Services of about $534K.DEMIL required property located at our 2 CONUS Demil sites (Anniston & Tucson) is handled by term sale contracts that require demil as a condition of the sale. Title to the property doesn’t pass to the buyer until after the government has verified the demil is complete. Term and one-time sales are also used OCONUS and in our Central region. In Central, we have several term sales in place to handle Kuwait, Afghanistan, and Iraq (Department of State) scrap. As you can see from the dark blue wedge in pie graph, Central sales are just over 20% of our revenue.The lower right quadrant is a graph of our annual proceeds. Last years proceeds were $16M over plan. The increased proceeds were due to increases in the metals market and scrap sales in Central. Our projected sales revenue this year is $61.34M and we have exceeded that by $24.57M.FY 13 Thru July - $85.9M RevenueSales Revenue

The instructor has 3 display units (plasma TV, Projection Screen, or Smartboard) to choose from while using 3 sources of information (laptop, and 2 separate DVD players). Therefore the instructor could use video clips, pictures, and Web pages all at once during the training session, in addition to using a wireless mic with new in ceiling mounted speakers in the classroom and the break room (especially on those days where after 5 days of instructing, voices may weaken).The Sim Lab has two warehouses where testing, training, and interactive exercises do take place. RBI owned the lab for most of the summer of 2012 testing and training prior to deployment. The warehouses have a total of 20 workstations and CPUs so the instructors can frequently go from module training on the computers to the warehouse racks where various types of property are on display. The Sim Lab has just under 300 line items of property to use for various instructional purposes. The items range from all of the different types of Demil Codes that our offices worldwide receive along with a few “simulated” items of items that are not supposed to receive (fake “secret” stickers on CPUs). Both warehouses are set up for DSS and have the latest barcoding equipment.The outlook for the Sim Lab is continually evolving. We have VTC equipment purchased and mounted in the classroom and during the first part of FY13, the VTC will be installed and add capability for DLA Disposition Services. In working with the Battle Creek ANG, we will be receiving an additional 3000 sq feet of covered storage space which means we will also be able to requisition additional material to enhance various training exercises. We have added new classes to the Sim Lab schedule to include DEMIL and Field Operations. The Sim Lab will also host the military reservists on a portion of their 2 week Annual Training for an interactive exercise to include receiving, warehousing, sales, and issuance of property.Future CapabilitiesVideo TeleconferencingAdding 3000 sq. ft of inside storageAdditional line items of propertyAdditional training classes (field operations, Demil)EDRT/CEW Interactive Exercises
