DRMO name changes to DLA Disposition Services

The Defense Reutilization and Marketing Service and the local Defense Reutilization and Marketing Office or DRMO have taken a new name. This is much more than a name change. It’s about helping the Department of Defense and customers see the full value of the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) as it enters a time of ever-shrinking resources.

The local site now is called DLA Disposition Services. DLA Disposition Services will provide the same level of service and support to warfighters and other customers in the disposition of excess property and management of hazardous waste as before. No changes in local operating hours or services will result. The same name will be used worldwide to provide unity.

DLA Disposition Services is part of the DLA, as it was under its former name. All other DLA field activities also took on new names to bring additional unity to the efforts.

In addition to the local operation, DLA Disposition Services is part of a global community that operates field sites in 41 states and 16 countries. Along with overseas operations in Europe, the Pacific and Africa, it has field sites in Afghanistan, Iraq and Kuwait.

In Iraq small teams fan out from the field sites to forward operating bases to work with combat units as they clear their bases as part of the responsible drawdown and reflecting a long-term commitment to stewardship.

The DLA Director, Navy Vice Admiral Alan Thompson, said he sought a clearer identity for all DLA elements to make it easier for customers to interact with the agency and help servicemembers take advantage of DLA’s comprehensive missions, products and services.
