This research evaluates the issues associated with a new property management concept for the use of DoD/Federal agencies to exchange serviceable, non-excess, used equipment for new equipment through a commercial exchange program that utilizes internet auctioning to assess fair market value for such property and provide credit at internet stores for future agency needs. The concept will enable agencies and Program Offices to recycle past appropriated funds back into their programs where Congress has already determined the critical need for such resources, and lessen the burden to Defense Reutilization and Marketing Office (DRMO), where such equipment generally returns pennies on the dollar at scrap value, to the Treasury Department.
