FEPMIS is an automated property management system that is used to provide full accountability and management for property acquired through the Federal Excess Personal Property (FEPP) program. FEPMIS was designed to meet all audit requirements imposed upon the States by law and regulation, as well as to provide a tool for the States to improve and assist in the effective management of FEPP. Under the FEPP program, the USDA FS Fire and Aviation Management (F&AM) staff is granted the authority to acquire excess property from other Federal agencies and loan it to the various State Foresters for use in their rural and wildland fire programs. FEPMIS interfaces with the General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Disposal System (FEDS) so that any property allocated to the FS State partners generates an entry in FEPMIS, thereby preventing any 'lost' property. FEPMIS is used to create, approve, and process the Standard Form 122 (SF-122), "Transfer Order Excess Personal Property." An SF-122 allows property managers to keep track of property owned by a federal agency on loan to a state agency.
