Surplus Disposition

Updated 2/19/2016

Westmont College Surplus Disposition Policy
per the Executive Team

To ensure that college property or its residual value is used for college purposes, departments seeking to have surplus items removed from their offices or other areas (including, but not limited to, college furniture, computers & electronics, artwork, and so on), should contact the Office of Procurement for a determination how their surplus will be handled.

The following are not permitted:

* Removal of college property from campus without authorization from the Office of Procurement.

* Offering to sell or give surplus items to any outside party. The college requires that this be done through the formal Surplus Disposition process.

* Transferring any major furnishings, artwork, or items of significant value from one location to another without informing Campus Planning or Procurement (or the Art Dept. for artwork). The college has aesthetic design standards which may be violated by an unapproved move, and certain inventories must be tracked.

* Dumping items that may have residual value in trash dumpsters or at any of the storage areas without authorization from the Office of Procurement, who will determine whether the items have residual value or should be discarded, as well as ensure that certain types of items are not disposed of in an illegal fashion.

* Leaving items outdoors prior to a scheduled move day, unless approved by the Office of Procurement. Weather may damage an item that otherwise had residual value.

Thank you for your cooperation.
