SERVICEABLE EXCESS STATE OWNED EQUIPMENT
Following are the procedures to follow when disposing of serviceable excess state owned equipment.
When disposing of serviceable state owned equipment that can be used by other colleges, notice of the equipment being disposed of should be circulated to the other community colleges by and “E-mail” message prior to the disposal. Minimum bids can be requested for equipment that is circulated through the system.
If no college requests the equipment, the college may then sell or donate the equipment to public schools or other governmental agencies. (G.S. 160A-274). There are no provisions to donate to non-profit organizations. Equipment may only be sold at a fair market value to non-profit organizations. The State Surplus Property Agency may be able to help with the determination of fair market value.
Serviceable excess equipment not taken through one of these processes may be sold through the State Surplus Agency, or in the same manner as is provided to public schools (G.S. 115D-15). The procedures for disposing of surplus property are described on the following pages.
