Disposal of Surplus and Obsolete Material-Equipment
The District must periodically dispose of materials and equipment which are considered to be obsolete or surplus to the District's needs. The Purchasing Department is responsible for the sale of obsolete and surplus items in accordance with statutes of the State of California. No other faculty or staff member is authorized to dispose of District materials or equipment. The following summarizes the District's procedures for the disposal of surplus or obsolete items:
- Divisions and Departments may request disposal of obsolete or surplus material by
completing the "Surplus Property" request and forwarding it to the Facilities Department
after having obtained the indicated approvals.
- The Purchasing Department circulates a list of surplus property to all District Managers
to ascertain whether or not the item has a functional use within their Division or
- Divisions and Departments which have a need for listed surplus equipment may request
the transfer of the obsolete or surplus item for use in their areas by completing
the "Surplus Property" form and forwarding it to the Facilities Department after having
obtained the indicated approvals. When the transfer of surplus equipment has been
authorized, the Facilities Department will coordinate with the Warehouse for the delivery
of approved materials or equipment to the requesting division or department.
- The District contracts out to a auction house to auction off all surplus property which is not retained by the District. All proceeds go back into the District's General Fund Account.
