The Texas 1033 Military Surplus Property Program

Background & Information

1033 Program Overview:  The National defense Authorization Act authorizes the Secretary of Defense to transfer excess Department of Defense (DoD) personal property to Federal, state and local Law Enforcement Agencies (LEA) with special emphasis given to counter drug and counter terrorism.  The 1033 Program (formerly the 1208 Program) allows LEAs to receive DoD excess property.  If you qualify and choose to participate, your organization will become one of over 13,000 local LEAs who have taken advantage of this unique program.

1033 Application & Registration
Two requirements must be met in order to participate in the program; you must have at least one TCLEOSE certified officer that has the authority to arrest and apprehend and your agency must be solely for law enforcement.  To register for the program, a completed Application Packet must be signed and submitted and an AMPS account set up to gain access to the RTD Web Portal online system.  To maintain active status, an updated Application Packet along with a physical inventory of controlled items, must be submitted annually by January 31 (as well as every time an agency's Chief Executive Official changes). 

Screening (Requesting Property)
Screening worldwide for excess property is extremely simple and is done online through the Defense Logistics Agency's property search application.  You can search for specific items or for a broad range of materials.  You can even create a want list, so the system can search for you. 

Property Accountability and Files Management
All records must be maintained in accordance with the DLA Memorandum of Agreement (MOA). The Chief Executive Official or the Head of Agency of the LEA is responsible for all 1033 Program controlled property.
