Abstract:

The Department of Defense (DOD) through a Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) component called the Defense Utilization and Marketing Service (DRMS) has a policy for disposing of government equipment and supplies considered surplus or deemed unnecessary to the agency's currently designated mission. DRMS is responsible for property reuse (including resale), precious metal recovery, recycling, hazardous property disposal, and the demilitarization of military equipment. The effort to dispose of surplus military equipment dates back to the end of World War II when the Federal government sought to reduce a massive inventory of surplus military equipment by making such equipment available to civilians. In August 2008, Liquidity Services, Inc. was awarded the DRMS contract to manage the receipt, storage, marketing, and disposition of all usable surplus property generated by DOD installations throughout the United States. The contract has a base term of three years, with two one-year renewal options.
