Important Information & Requirements

To participate in the program, you must have a Law Enforcement Data Sheet on file with the State Coordinator and LESO. This is in place if you have requested participation in the LESO 1033 program.

Due to the strict guidelines of this program, it is mandatory that all information necessary to approve the request(s) be provided.

All requests for GSA purchases must be on your departmental letterhead and signed by the agency head (Sheriff, Chief, etc.)

Each GSA purchase requires an individual justification and request.

The letter must include the following information:

  • The number of POST certified officers (part-time or full-time) in your agency.
  • The population within your geographic jurisdiction.

  • Major cities located within 250 miles of your agency with a population of 100,000 or more.
  • A statement indicating that you have the capability to properly operate, maintain, secure, and care for the items requested.

Send your justification letter/request for approval to the state coordinator.

After approval, you complete the process by doing the following:

  • Determine the GSA vendor based on the best bid.
  • Place the order with that vendor.
  • Receive the property and verify that it meets your purchase order specifications.
  • Pay the vendor directly for the property.

All purchase orders submitted to GSA contract vendors must include the following language:
