Early Transfer Authority: A Guide to Using ETA to Dispose of Surplus Property

The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), Office of the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Installations and Environment)/Environmental Management (ODUSD([&E]/EM) has prepared this Early Transfer Authority (ETA) Guide to assist Military Components in the disposal of surplus property using the provision for early transfer in the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA). ETA applies to all federal property but has proven to be especially effective at some base closure sites where its application facilitates accelerated property reuse by streamlining the transfer, cleanup, and redevelopment of the environmentally contaminated property.
