Real property disposal is the process by which federal agencies identify and then transfer, donate, or sell real property they no longer need. Disposition is an important asset management function because the costs of maintaining unneeded properties can be substantial, consuming financial resources that might be applied to long-standing real property needs, such as repairing existing facilities, or other pressing policy issues, such as reducing the national debt.

Also, timely and proper disposal of obsolete ships in the National Defense Reserve Fleet, is critical to protecting the environment. Because these ships often contain hazardous materials, members of Congress and others have raised issues about the environmental concerns. This is also true for the management of civilian radioactive waste, and defense surplus equipment disposal. (Imprint: Nova)
