Applicants make various online certifications about their jurisdiction and level of vest needs.
More Detailed Answer:
When a jurisdiction indicates that vests have been purchased, they are also certifying that the vests are in compliance with applicable standards and that the invoiced prices for vests do not include unrelated law enforcement equipment. All transactions related to vest procurements are subject to federal and jurisdiction-based audits. Purchase orders, receiving reports, and invoices need to be consistent with the provisions of the Bulletproof Vest Partnership Grant Act and maintained on file for audit purposes.
