Policies and Procedures

B0404 Surplus Property Disposal Policy


Surplus Property is defined as items of equipment or material, excluding land or real estate, that are in excess of department/District needs, no longer usable in the instructional program and/or operation of the department/District, technically or mechanically obsolete, or no longer functional. The Business Office has the authority to authorize the disposal of District surplus property.  In all instances, records of disposal shall be maintained for 3 years form the date of disposal.

Disposal of Western Technical College surplus property (equipment, materials, and supplies, including scrap and waste) shall be handled in accordance with College policy and procedures and in a manner consistent with the state statutes and state board requirements.  At no time shall said disposition result in a monetary benefit, direct or indirect, for a college employee or District board member.  Wis. Statute 38.14(2)(bm) only allows districts to sell property it no longer needs which, by definition, does not allow districts to donate surplus property.
