Surplus Items (Internal)

When it has been determined that no further value is to be realized by the University through utilization of a particular piece of equipment, furniture or property (excluding real estate), the said item shall be declared surplus.

The University has developed a policy (ESU-FA-2011-034) to address surplus items in order to receive the maximum amount of value from a piece of equipment, furniture or property (excluding real estate).

The Director of Procurement and Contracting is responsible for assuring compliance with the policy; procedures have been developed to assist the campus in how to proceed with designating items as surplus/scrap.

The decision to designate an item as surplus must be made by the person with purchasing authority for the department in which the equipment, furniture or property (excluding real estate) is located.

The Surplus Property Declaration Form (SPDF) is to be completed by individuals wishing to dispose of or move property.
