1122 Program

Purchase equipment for counter-drug, homeland security, and emergency response.
What is the 1122 Program?

The 1122 Program is now available for both local government and state agency use. State agencies must follow the instructions provided under the 1122 Program State Agency Participant link. Additional information regarding getting certified and making purchases is included within the 1122 Program Guide.

New York State Office of General Services (OGS) has been designated by the Governor as the lead agency for the 1122 Program which allows certified state and local governments to purchase equipment for counter-drug, homeland security, and emergency response activities from specific federal sources. This authority is derived from The National Defense Authorization Act (Section 1122) for FY1994 and FY2009, which subsequently became law under Title 10 Section 381 Military Support for Civilian Public Safety Agencies.

The 1122 Program allows state and local governmental entities to save money on purchases for their counter-drug, homeland security, and emergency response activities through the use of large volume federal government contracts. 


New York’s 1122 Program is open to state and local governmental entities that have, as part of their mission, at least one of the following public safety categories:

  • Counter Drug: A requirement to enforce anti-drug laws or engages in or supports prevention, intervention, or suppression activities related to counter drug, including educational activities.
  • Emergency Response: A requirement for first responders plus emergency management, public health, clinical care, public works, and other skilled support personnel (such as equipment operators) that provide immediate support services during prevention, response, and recovery operations.
  • Homeland Security:  A requirement for homeland security to prevent and protect New York State from terrorist attacks within the United States; reduce America’s vulnerability to terrorism, major disasters, and other emergencies; and minimize the damage and recover from attacks, major disasters, and other emergencies that occur.  
Federal Resources for Purchasing

Items are available for purchase from three federal sources:

  1. The General Services Administration (GSA contracted vendors and AutoChoice) from the GSA eLibrary.
  2. Department of Defense via the Defense Logistics Agency 
  3. Department of the Army
Get Certified

State and local governmental entities must submit a letter to the New York State Point of Contact (SPOC) requesting certification in the New York 1122 Program. Each public safety category — Counter Drug, Emergency Response, or Homeland Security — requires a separate certification letter.
