View policy pdf: Used Equipment Policy
In certain situations, it is more advantageous for the University to purchase used equipment instead of new equipment. Used equipment should be personally inspected prior to the purchase being made. If an inspection is not practical, the University may accept, with justification, the purchase without inspection.

It is the responsibility of the department to ensure the used equipment has been examined prior to submitting a purchase request. The department is also responsible for writing a letter to justify that it is in the State’s best interest to purchase used equipment as well as provide the quote from the vendor.
