    Policy Statement
    The University of Georgia is required by the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia and state and federal regulations to inventory and track moveable assets.  Assets are acquired from a variety of sources and must be used for institutional purposes and they must be disposed of in accordance to state guidelines. The Department of Administrative Services defines surplus property as “any item that is non-consumable and non-expendable that is no longer needed”.  These items may or may not be inventoried by the University of Georgia.  There are several options for disposing of state property.
    Reason for policy

    Ensure all UGA assets are disposed of properly.

    Procedures
    UGA makes every effort possible to recycle rather than send items to the landfill.  Items received in the surplus warehouse that are not re-used by other UGA departments, not sold, and not transferred or donated to approved charitable organizations can be recycled.  DOAS maintains a contract for this purpose and UGA must use the approved vendor.
