What is a Donee?
A donee is a Louisiana entity that meets our eligibility requirements, is a state or local government, a qualified 501 non-profit organization, or a qualified SBA 8a contractor.
What do I have to do to become a Donee?
Review our eligibility requirements to see if you qualify. If you believe you may qualify, complete the application of eligibility and drop off, or mail the original (no copies) to LA Federal Property Assistance Agency, 1635 Foss Street, Baton Rouge, LA 70802.
Is there a limit to the amount and types of property potentially available to donees?
Do you have auctions for the public?
Yes. Our agency does not hold onsite public auctions; however, we have property featured on the GSA (General Service Administration) website: www.gsaauctions.gov.
Can I send someone to pick up and sign for property on my behalf?
Yes, as long as the person is listed as an authorized representative for your agency on the eligibility application. If the person is not listed on the application, the chief administrator can send a memo on the agency's letterhead authorizing the individual to pick up the property. However, the chief administrator will still be required to sign the invoice. We can either fax or email the invoice and once signed it must be returned to our office.
Can we dispose of federal property?
Federal property may be disposed of by a donee when the compliance period, and all other property regulations have been satisfied. Property less than $5,000 original acquisition cost (OAC) is considered non-compliance and must be in service for 12 months prior to disposal. Property equal to or over $5,000 OAC is considered compliance and cannot be disposed of until 18 months from the in service date. Vessels (50 feet or more in length) and aircraft with a unit acquisition cost of $5,000 OAC or more cannot be disposed of until 60 months from the in-service date, and may require written permission from Louisiana Federal Property Assistance Agency prior to disposal. Some military property has perpetual compliance and must be returned to the Federal Government or transferred to another donee. Donees must also follow their own agency’s disposal procedures.
Does federal property include land?
No, it includes movable federal surplus supplies and property only.
