Computers for Learning 

The Department of Defense (DOD) Computers for Learning (CFL) program was created to provide useful IT equipment to schools and educational nonprofit organizations serving grades pre-kindergarten through 12th grade. The DOD CFL program is designed to streamline the transfer of excess and surplus DOD IT equipment to schools.

The application process is simple, just apply on-line and submit a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA). In addition, non-profit educational entities must submit their Articles of Incorporation, Board of Directors, and IRS 501(c)(3) (tax-exempt notification letter).

 All MOAs must be current (the person who signed the MOA must still be employed by the school) before any computer equipment can be received by the school under the DOD CFL Program.

 For CFL program information/comments, contact: the CFL Program office at DODCFL@dla.mil

Public, and Private/Parochial Schools

Thank you for your interest in the Department of Defense (DOD) Computers for Learning (CFL) program!

The DOD CFL program authorizes the transfer of information technology (IT) assets to pre-kindergarten through 12th grade schools and educational non-profit entities.

Once your school has applied and been approved for participation in the program, it's as easy as searching DLA Disposition Services inventory for IT equipment that meets your needs, and inputting the request. If a DOD activity does not require the material during the first fourteen days on inventory, the school is designated the equipment. The school will receive a call from the DLA Disposition Services site and/or the Turn-In Activity to inform them that the material is available for removal and to schedule the removal. Note: The material must be removed within fourteen (14) days of notification.

To begin the registration process

Complete the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) by clicking the hyperlink and email it to DODCFL@dla.mil. The Memorandum of Agreement is a binding document that identifies the roles and responsibilities of the Government and the School. Please be sure you read and understand the terms of the MOA before submission.  

For any questions please contact the CFL Office at DODCFL@dla.mil

Educational Non-Profit Entities

The General Services Administration developed guidelines for DOD agencies to follow when transferring excess computer equipment to educational non-profit entities. Certain criteria is used to determine whether or not an educational non-profit entity qualifies to receive DOD computer equipment under Executive Order 12999.

  • The organization must be a non-profit as determined by the Internal Revenue Service under section 501(c)(3) of the United States Tax Code.
  • The organization must operate exclusively for the purpose of education.
  •  The organization must serve pre-K through grade 12 students only.

Once your school has applied and been approved for participation in the program, it's as easy as searching DLA Disposition Services inventory for IT equipment that meets your needs, and inputting the request. If a DOD activity does not require the material during the first fourteen days on inventory, the school is designated the equipment. The school will receive a call from the DLA Disposition Services site and/or the Turn-In Activity to inform them that the material is available for removal and to schedule the removal. Note: The material must be removed within fourteen (14) days of notification.

To begin the registration process

  1.

Please be sure you read and understand the terms of the MOA before submission.

  2. Educational non-profit entities are also required to submit  their Articles of Incorporation, Board of Directors, and IRS 501(c)(3) (tax-exempt notification letter). In addition, DOD CFL staff may wish to interview the applicant via telephone and review your organization's bylaws and any amendments to your original Articles of Incorporation.
