FLETC donates computers to area schools

For Immediate Release
October 3, 2019

GLYNCO, GA – Schools throughout the local area are benefiting from the Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers' (FLETC) Computers for Learning Program.

The program is a combined effort between FLETC’s Chief Information Officer (CIO) Directorate and Assets and Logistics Management Division (ALM). The CIO team members erase and format computers FLETC is no longer able to use, and transfer custody to ALM Property Disposal Specialists in Glynco or to Inventory Management Specialists at FLETC's Training Delivery Points in Artesia, New Mexico; Charleston, South Carolina; or Cheltenham, Maryland. FLETC works with the local communities to provide needed computers to area schools.   

In fiscal year 2018, FLETC facilitated the donation of 486 pieces of computer and information technology equipment with an acquisition value of $818,652. The quality of their work earned FLETC the General Services Administration (GSA) 2019 Gold Star Award for Excellence. This award is based on innovative, cost-effective, or streamlined practices or policies that have improved access to computer technology in America's classrooms.

FLETC takes great effort to protect educationally useful federal equipment for transfer to schools and educational nonprofit organizations.
