This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

Spreadsheets or summary tables of all requests for aircraft, armored vehicles and weapons under Program 1033.

If summary tables/spreadsheets or other electronic databases of requests are not available, please provide copies of all requests for the above.

According to the DLA Disposition Services website, all requests are to be sent to DRMSLESO@dla.mil.

Links to the appropriate three forms are available here: https://www.dispositionservices.dla.mil/rtd03/leso/forms.shtml

The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

Dear Mr. Musgrave,

Thank you for your FOIA request.

In order to process your request I need to get some clarification.

I do not see where you have provided a phone number to contact you.

Please call me at your earliest convenience to discuss your request.

I can be reached at the number below.

Respectfully,

From: Shawn Musgrave

Hi Judith,

So I don't forget, here's my summary of our phone call yesterday.

I concur to narrow this request to:

A listing by state of all disbursements of aircraft, armored vehicles and weapons disbursed under program 1033 for the past five years (beginning January 2008).

This listing is to include:

-Name of equipment
-Equipment description
-Number of items disbursed
-State of disbursement
-Acquisition value of disbursement
-Date of disbursement

Please confirm that this is your understanding, as well. As I recall, you were going to check on how difficult it will be to pull disbursements back to 2008.

Best,
Shawn

From: Shawn Musgrave

Hi again,

Forgot to mention that I'd like an explanation also as to why "tactical equipment" is exempt to the extent that data cannot be released at the agency level.

Thank you!

-Shawn

From: Mansfield, Judith DLA CIV DISPOSITION SERVICES

Good Afternoon Shawn,

Please call me at your earliest convenience. I'd like to discuss this request in further detail with you.

Respectfully,

From: Shawn Musgrave

Hi Judith,

Just gave you a call and got your voicemail. Would any time tomorrow be convenient to speak?

-Shawn

From: Mansfield, Judith DLA CIV DISPOSITION SERVICES

Hi Shawn,

Yes, tomorrow works great for me. Can you send me an email telling me when you'll call so I can make sure I stay put in my office? We are both on Eastern Time so anytime mid-morning or mid-afternoon is best.

I just tried calling you real quick and it went to voicemail, so I think a pre-appointed time would most likely work best.

From: Shawn Musgrave

Hi Judith,

Sorry about that -- we've been having some issues with our phone setup. How's tomorrow at 11am?

-Shawn

From: Mansfield, Judith DLA CIV DISPOSITION SERVICES

Perfect. Talk to you at 11:00

You call me please.

From: Mansfield, Judith DLA CIV DISPOSITION SERVICES

Good Morning Shawn,

Per our phone conversation today, I understand your FOIA request to be amended to:

A listing, by State or US Territory, of all property issued through the LESO 1033 program for the past two calendar years.

This list is to include:
Item name
NSN (National Stock Number)
Quantity issued
Acquisition Value (value of the property when new)
Date of issue

If you concur, I can begin processing this request.

Thank you.

Respectfully,

From: Shawn Musgrave

Hi Judith,

I do concur. As we discussed, it would be helpful to also have a formal explanation as to DLA's interpretation that tactical equipment disbursements cannot be released at the agency level.

Thank you!

Best,
Shawn

From: Shawn Musgrave

Judith,

I have received your acknowledgement for DRMS-14-MFOI-00004. Please be sure to send all communications for this request to this inbox directly, rather than to the email address for my separate request for the 1033 program roster, DRMS-14-MFOI-00003.

Thank you again for all of your help!

Best,
Shawn

From: Mansfield, Judith DLA CIV DISPOSITION SERVICES

Got it. Sorry.

Had you entered into the correspondence profile from your other request.

Is that why one request says "DEPT MR 7019" and the other says "DEPT MR 7018"??

From: Shawn Musgrave

Not a problem!

Yes, the MR#### is our internal processing code -- by including it in the address we're able to sort our mail more quickly, just as the custom email addresses allow us to follow up on requests more easily.

Thanks again!

Hi Judith,

The attached spreadsheet provided several months ago includes a number of cost entries seemingly unattached to items.

In the "ARCHIVED RECORDS" tab, row 55622 to row 55920 include an entry in the "TOTAL_COST" column but nothing in other columns. Can you advise as to whether the spreadsheet provided is missing remaining entries for these rows?

Thank you for your help,
Shawn

From: Shawn Musgrave

Ms. Mansfield -

Checking on this again.

From: Mansfield, Judith DLA CIV DISPOSITION SERVICES
