How to Search for Property
DLA Disposition Services has a searchable database that makes it easy to find the property of interest to you. The inventory of property is updated nightly and contains over 600,000 items. The information below will help to put you on your way to search the DLA Disposition Services inventory for the parts and equipment that is right for you.
The Government identifies items by assignment of a National Stock Number (NSN). Numbers are assigned based on the end use of the item.
The configuration of the NSN is a 13-digit number. Example: 6645-00-123-4567
The method to search the DLA Disposition Services inventory is by using the correct Federal Supply Group (FSG), Federal Supply Class (FSC), National Stock Number (NSN), or National Item Identification Number (NIIN).
Searching the DLA Disposition Services inventory has been made easy by the use of the FSC Finder. With the FSC Finder you can find:
1. Find the right FSC by entering keywords.
2. A listing of all FSCs within an FSG.
3. A full description of each FSC
Once you have found the FSC you can then immediately check DLA Disposition Services inventory for that type of property.
The first two positions (66) identify the Federal Supply Group (FSG). In the example cited, the Federal Supply Group 66 identifies the broad category of "measuring instruments".
The FSG is followed by two additional positions which together with the FSG form a four position Federal Supply Class (FSC). The 6645 narrows it down to a specific type of measuring instrument, "time measuring instruments".
Because the FSC is assigned based on end use, it is possible for the same item to be in more than one FSC. For example, a cleaning compound could be assigned FSC 6850 when used for general purpose cleaning, but the same chemical composition would be assigned FSC 6750 when used as a photographic cleaner. In each case, the NIIN would be different.
The last 9 positions (00-123-4567) are the National Item Identification Number (NIIN) and identify the specific item. The first two positions of the NIIN identify the NATO country code; e.g., 00 and 01 are assigned to the United States. The NIIN does not follow a logical sequence as the FSG and FSC do. The same NIIN is never used for more than one FSC at the same time.

Demilitarization (DEMIL) Code Challenges

The submitter shall complete the form as completely and as accurately as possible. All mandatory blocks on the web form “Request for Review and Verification of FLIS DEMIL Code” (DEMIL Challenge) must have an entry. Failure to provide required information in the mandatory fields will prevent the user from submitting the form electronically via the web, and could significantly delay a timely response.

Meanwhile, the remaining DEMIL A property will be available for purchase from our sales partner, Government Liquidation.
Finding a Catalog/IFB
DLA Disposition Services IFBs can be found in three basic ways:

You will also see the DLA Disposition Services site, sale number, catalog file size (regular and zipped), and the method of sale (sealed bid, spot bid, local auction, or commodity offered):

The second way catalogs can be searched is by the DLA Disposition Services site. On this page all locations are listed in alphabetical order. Some catalogs will be duplicated due to the fact that various sites might combine together to make a single sale:
