Letter of Authorization Instructions
In order for a DOD customer to pick up property from a DLA Disposition Service site, they must have a DLA Form 2517, Letter of Authorization (LOA) on file in the Centralized File at DLA Disposition Services prior to the arrival of the person picking up the property.
The LOA shall include the full name, activity, DODAAC, telephone number, address, and digital signatures for the Accountable Supply Officer (ASO), Commanding Officer, and designees authorized to sign requisitions (for direct removal) on behalf of the ASO.
The LOA must be digitally signed by the designees and the ASO prior to the Commanding Officer digitally signing the form. If any digital signatures were added after the Commanding Officer signed the form, the form will be rejected.
The LOA must be updated annually or as changes to the original designation is made, whichever occurs first.
Once you have filled out the form completely, including digital signatures you will submit it as an email attachment to DLADSCentralizedFile@dla.mil . It will be automatically directed to the Reutilization/Transfer/Donation office. If approved, you will receive an approval email and it will be upload to the Centralized File.
Direct pickup for allocated property may be made by an individual with a valid identification and a DD Form 1348-1A. The DD Form 1348-1A must be signed by the ASO or a designee listed on LOA.
Disposition Services cannot hold property. However, if sufficient time allows a Transportation Movement Request (TMR) for property can be created that has special transportation requirements.
The Accountable Officer will remove lines from the list if the customer does not meet internal criteria or is not authorized to have the items.
