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.
