About Us

Who We Are

The Users and Screeners Association (USA) is an independent consortium of federal agencies, cost reimbursement contractors, project grantees, federal cooperators from land grant universities, and others who acknowledge the prime directive to use Federal Excess Personal Property as the first source of supply.  Consequently, USA is a unique blend of screeners who are looking to acquire property and federal property managers who are anxious to dispose of property.  Blended within are agency property administrators, GSA Policy and Operations personnel, DLA/DRMS Policy and Operations Personnel, GSA Area Property Officers, and a wealth of other persons who all contribute to making Federal Excess Personal Property (FEPP) the first source of supply.

Our Purpose

The purpose of our organization is to share expertise, alert members to program changes, promote the benefits of using federal excess personal property, develop professionalism among federal screeners, and provide a unified voice to federal personal property concerns.  The ultimate goal for USA-FEPP members--and any FEPP professional regardless of membership--is to serve as a steward for the American taxpayer's investment in government.
