It depends on the program, the materiel, and the value and the type of
organization involved... The SASP and the GSA will be able to define each
items time of holding.... Remember that these items are donated for a
particular program and if not used for that program and records kept that
the materiel can be recalled by the donating agency. Getting particular
items specifically for the purpose of holding and selling for a profit is
not what the programs are for... Certain folks are residing in expense
paid vacation villas because of fraud in this respect... RAM
