How To Dispose Of Equipment & Supplies
Note: Medical Center departments should call UCDMC Plant Operations & Maintenance (PO&M), Excess Property Warehouse, at (916) 734-0194 to arrange for the sale/disposal of their items.
For policy and procedure on all methods of disposition including trade-in, donation and cannibalization, please see policy 350-80, sec. IV.
Check the Type of Acquisition
How was the item acquired by the department? If it was loaned to the department from an outside agency or government entity you will need to acquire agency approval for disposition.
Check the Funding Source
Before disposing of any items, always confirm the funding source. There may be restrictions on the disposal of equipment acquired with extramural/government funds. Check the original agreement paperwork for the contract or grant; disposal instructions are often stipulated there. If in doubt, check with Extramural Funds Accounting or Equipment Management.
Prepare the Item for Sale/Disposal
For items containing refrigerant or oil (e.g., refrigerators, a/c units, ice machines), contact Facilities Management to request a work order number for decommissioning purposes. The work order number should be included on your service request form (see below).
For computer items, the hard drives/operating systems should be wiped and personal data removed prior to pick-up.
Contact the Bargain Barn
Complete the Service Request to initiate the sale/salvage process. Up to five items should be included in one request, if possible.
A Bargain Barn representative will then contact you regarding the marketability of your items.
If you have more than five
items with asset numbers, please e-mail
a list of items in spreadsheet format. Consult the Service Request for the information that should be included in the spreadsheet.
