<b>What is the 1122 Program'</b>
Section 1122 of the fiscal year 1994 National Defense Authorization Act established the authority for state and local governments to purchase law enforcement equipment through Federal procurement channels, provided that the equipment is used in the performance of counter-drug, homeland security, and emergency response activities. By taking advantage of the purchasing power of the federal government to receive discounts commensurate with large volume purchases, the 1122 Program affords state and local governments the opportunity to maximize their use of taxpayer dollars.
<b>Who are the program proponents'</b>
The U.S. Army, the General Services Administration (GSA), the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), and the Department of Justice (DOJ) are actively involved in the 1122 Program. As the executive agent of the program, the Army has formed a steering committee consisting of representatives from the Army, GSA, DLA, and DOJ to oversee implementation of the program.
<b>How does the program work'</b>
The governor of each state participating in the 1122 Program appoints a state point of contact (SPOC) to administer the state's activities under the program. The ordering process begins when the state or local government activity identifies items needed in support of counter-drug, homeland security, and emergency response missions.
<b>Who can I contact for more information'</b>
State and local government personnel interested in applying for entry into the program should contact the executive agent at (703) 695-7964 or via e-mail at 1122Program@conus.army.mil.
