About these data
Military equipment transfers
The military equipment transfer information presented is provided by the Defense Logistics Agency’s LESO Public Information Page. We present “LESO Property Transferred to Participating Agencies” data, which are published quarterly.
Property falls into two categories – Controlled and Non-controlled. Controlled property always remains on the LESO property book because it still belongs to and is accountable to Department of Defense (DoD). Non-controlled property consists of common items Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) would also sell to the general public. The data represent a “snapshot in time” of Non-controlled property, which represents the majority of the transfers.
The letter codes shown in the table refer to various levels of control required before items are released from DOD control, with the letter A representing items that were “determined by the DoD to present a low risk when released out of DoD control” (such as clothing, safety gear, or tools). After one year these Non-controlled items become the property of the law enforcement agency and are removed from the LESO database, so the full value of historical Non-controlled item transfers is unknown.
Detailed information about the DEMIL codes can be found at the DoD DEMIL Coding Management Office (DDCMO) page.
We have consolidated items in the LESO database that have identical stock numbers and ship dates and adjusted the quantity of the remaining items accordingly.
Equipment transfer data are updated on this site quarterly as made available by the Defense Logistics Agency.
The data shown reflects transfers as of September 30, 2022, and was published on this website on Jan 10, 2023.
