GSA State and Local Program Basics • Schedules Programs • 1122 • Cooperative Purchasing • Disaster Recovery Purchasing Program • Non-Schedules Programs • Wildfire Programs • Computers for Learning • Personal Property
The Basics • What is a Schedule? • How is a Schedule awarded? • How does it become a “competitive vehicle”?
Authority The National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 1994 contained Section 1122, which allows State and local governments to purchase new law enforcement equipment for counterdrug activities through the Federal Government.
How Does the Program Work? STATE POINT OF CONTACT (SPOC) • Appointed by the Governor of the State • The State Point of Contact (SPOC) • Receives all requisitions from state and local law enforcement entities and ensure availability of funds • Determine that the items will be used for counter-drug activities
How Does the Program Work? STATE POINT OF CONTACT (SPOC) • DA or DLA stocked items – to the appropriate supply center • Commercial items directly with the Multiple Award Schedule Contractor (GSA) • Vehicles – ordered through GSA
What is the vendor’s responsibility when selling products to 1122 Program Participants at GSA Pricing? • The product is on one of the Schedules/SINs approved by GSA for the 1122 Program • Verify if the state in which the purchasing agency is located has an appointed State Coordinator and identify them • All orders being placed through the 1122 Program are to include the statement, “This order is placed pursuant to the State and Local Law Enforcement Equipment Procurement Program (“1122 Program”) in support of counterdrug activities, under the authority of the State Point of Contact (SPOC) for the State of __________________.”
