I believe its a federal government issue, not a company issue. Feel free to contact your congress critters about it.

My EUC filled on 6/29/17 cleared 7/17/17 and I have filled one on 7/21/17 its still pending.
If you already have a cleared EUC from a GovPlanet purchase within the past 30 months, the timeline is still sitting at 7 business days from the date TSC accepts your EUC. PM me an Item# if you feel that you fall into this category.

Absolutely Capone, maybe I will run it up the flagpole that we need to suspend all auctions until the government get us the forms...I am sure that no one would complain about that.
Cucv- The SF 97 will be dated with the date it was prepared and signed by the Seller (DLA), that along with your invoice should, or at least it has for other people, show that you were waiting on the government document and when it was signed. If that does not work PM me with the item # and I will see what I can do on this end.

Oh yeah right! Because they listen so well as it is. I bet most of them don't even know what an SF-97 is! But I digress......

Ok, I will try and update this thread on a weekly basis (no promises). I have the EUC team tracking individual groups to help get a better timeline so everyone can guess fairly accurately on when their EUC should be approved. I will publish the groups that can realistically expect to see an answer within the next 2 weeks, along with the average processing time. I will continue to tweak our tracking procedures so that we can hopefully start giving out a little better info to everyone. Please remember, this is not when your item sold or you sent in your EUC, this is only the numbers that TSC accepted and the date they were accepted.

Pre 6/27: 15 Remaining (6 over 45 business days)
6/27: 94
7/5: 107
Average processing time is still hovering at 47 business days
Average weekly approvals is around 125-130 per week

Thank you for your help PHasty. I think any info you can share with us is appreciated!

My EUC was sent to TSC on 7-3 so is it safe to assume I fall in to the 7-5 group?

So, for what it's worth... I'd just get a standardized memorandum, on GovPlanet letter head, and put a no BS statement: "Gov ran out, had to print more, took a while. Don't' penalize the buyer. Signed, lovingly, PHasty"

Just put it in with every SF-97 until you get to the "current" set, and call it a day.

The majority of the DMVs will utilize the date on the SF97 and/or the reassignment letter to start their clock. There have been several instances where customers have requested an SF97 months, sometimes years after the sale and have not had an issue with the 45 day time frame most DMVs utilize to determine "Late" titling. I am not going to pull the trigger on even more paperwork, which would slow the process down even more getting these out as quick as I can when only a few people may need one. The letter will have to be personalized for each item to include the make model and serial number/VIN...Most DMVs would laugh at a simple form letter.

When I got my title for my 813 it was dated just a few weeks before (-0- penality) not when I made purchase which was in march and I got title in July. Don't know if it is normal, but I am glad.

Thanks PHasty for the information. I for one are glad that there is an entity that represents? the Fed. and the purchaser in selling and buying surplus hardware.

Not knowing when is hard because of the apprehension to start motoring in "my" MV. Get caught driving without tags is bad enough, but get towed then not having a state title and tow lot starts earning some serious cash.

We have some Great Peace Officers here in town, so they will give you a pass but don't push your luck. I am confident that paperwork will show, I just want to get transfer of ownership as soon as possible.
