The following procedures are to be followed for the sale, transfer, or disposal of University-owned computer equipment:
Before you look at disposal procedures:
- For equipment purchased with Sponsored Research Grant Funds, seek permission from Office of Research & Sponsored Programs officer before initiating disposal.
- In all circumstances, you are required to completely erase all computer hard disk drives by using a LTS-provided erasure tool.
- Computers that are less than 6 years old should be made available for other departments to use via Asa's Attic for at least 5 days before sale or disposal by other means. Asa's Attic is administered by Purchasing Services.
- If you sell the equipment to another University department, use a Budget/Expense Reallocation Form to transfer the appropriate funds.
- If you sell the equipment to an individual or off-campus entity, use an Equipment Sales Agreement to properly record the sale terms and conditions.
- If you give away / donate the equipment, use an Equipment Transfer Agreement to properly record the transfer terms and conditions
