Welcome to the Law Enforcement
1122 New Property Program Home Page!
The National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 1994 contained section 1122, which allows State and local governments to purchase new law enforcement equipment suitable for counterdrug activities from the Federal Government. For the purpose of this program, the Act defines eligible "units of local government" as "any city, county, township, town, borough, parish, village, or other general purpose political subdivision of a State; and Indian tribes which perform law enforcement functions as determined by the Secretary of the Interior".
ATTENTION FIRST RESPONDERS: The Office of Domestic Preparedness (ODP) has entered into agreements with the Defense Supply Center Philadelphia (DSCP) and the Marine Corps Systems Command (MCSC) to allow ODP State and local grant recipients to take advantage of military equipment procurement services. Recipients of ODP grant equipment funding may use DSCP and MCSC prime vendors to save time and costs in equipment purchases. Grantees may use only Federal ODP grant monies for 1122 purchases. State and local monies may not be used.
Because of its volume purchasing power, the Federal Government receives tremendous discounts on many of the items commonly used by local law enforcement agencies. Your organization can take direct advantage of these discounts. Federal contracts can be used as a tool of comparison for your organization, with the prices serving as a benchmark for comparison with independent bids or negotiating. Also, using Federal contracts can save you time and money. Because the contracts have already been through the Federal government's bid process, you save administrative costs and time in not having to prepare specifications, advertise, and award contracts.
