What is Surplus Property?
Surplus Property encompasses all school property no longer in use by a department. Departments should transfer all property and equipment to Surplus Property as soon as it is determined that it is no longer needed. State property may not be transferred or sold except to other departments. Surplus property may not be discarded, given away, or converted to personal use.
Property designated as surplus, is available to departments on a first come first serve basis. Viewing of surplus property may be scheduled between 8 a.m. and noon, Monday through Friday. Faculty and staff should contact Libby Rush (ext. 1589) to schedule a view time.
How to Surplus Property and Arrange Pick-up
A Transfer/Surplus Property form must be completed PRIOR to sending any items to our Surplus Property Warehouse or transfer to another department. Use a separate form for each item. Multiple items may be listed on one Transfer/Surplus Property form when a group of like items without fixed asset decals is being declared surplus property. For example, if surplusing 20 student chairs, use one form for “20 student chairs.” The Transfer/Surplus Property Form must be signed by the Dean or Department Head (there are no exceptions).
Facility Services will handle delivery and pick-up of your surplus property on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Notice of 48 hours is required and your request should be submitted to Diane Millette (ext. 3323)
Availability of State Surplus Property for School Departmental Use
Departments may purchase property the NC State Surplus Property by sealed bid, negotiated sale or public auction. If you know of items for sale by another State agency prior to it being placed on sealed bid, your department may negotiate a price with that agency. This property must be purchased via a purchase order. We do not store your surplus purchases, therefore only items for immediate use should be purchased.
Surplus Property Sales to the Public through Bids
Surplus property valued at greater than $100 not needed by departments is listed with the State Surplus Property Agency in Raleigh, which advertises it for public bid. Interested parties may view bid sheets, states classifieds, vehicles lists, and place bids on line at http://www.ncstatesurplus.com/ssp/public/ssphomepage/ssp.htm
Surplus Property Store Sales to the Public
Under new guidelines, NC Surplus Property authorizes institutions to operate on-site satellite surplus stores to sell to the public items priced at $100 or less. Shoppers can find a variety of items monthly. All merchandise will be sold as is, and must be picked up at the time of purchase. All purchases must be paid for in cash and all sales are final. No labor will be furnished. Buyers must be prepared to carry the items they purchase.
