Turn-in to the DLA Disposition Services Site or Receipt In Place Procedures


Please, maintain close liaison with the your local DLA Disposition Services Site

One of the most critical and important stages in the flow of property through the disposition system is the initial receipt of property at the DLA Disposition Services Site & Receipt in Place (RIP)

Disposal Service Representative (DSR): The Disposal Service Representatives or DSRs are the face of DLA Disposition Services to the transactional customer. DSRs implement the Service Delivery Methods developed by DLA Disposition Services to better serve our customers with a consistent property mix. They assist the customer by making disposal decisions regarding property at the customer’s location, sending property directly to its ultimate location whenever possible thereby reducing the number of times it has to be handled. DSRs help reduce the overall cost of disposal to the DoD. They assist the customer in the solution of common disposal issues, and they are the customer’s advocate to the DLA Disposition Services as well as the DLA Disposition Services voice to the customer.

Receipt in Place (RIP)

(1) Property will be processed as “receipt in place” when the DLA Disposition Services Site is physically unable to accept property either by regulation or other restrictions. Requests for withdrawal after the DLA Disposition Services Site accepts accountability shall be coordinated with the DLA Disposition Services Site. DLA Disposition Services Sites shall arrange for such support with the local host installation or the generating activity, e.g., ISA, MOU, etc.
(see DoD 4160.21-M, Chapter 3, paragraph B for details):

General: Inspection of the property is performed in place if it is more advantageous to do so because of the size, weight, or category of the property. Excess property not transferred physically to the DLA Disposition Services Site shall be tagged with a status tag indicating the DTID number, Federal Condition Code and DLA Disposition Services Site accountability.

If the property is received in place, the tagging must include identification as property on the account of the DLA Disposition Services Site. (Property should be consolidated physically in a designated area, but may be left in place if this action is determined locally to be justified for economic or other valid reasons ). The activity having physical custody shall be responsible for care and protection of this property until it is disposed of or moved to the DLA Disposition Services Site.
