Hi Chris - these are very creative options. Thanks for sharing!

Equipment can be transferred internally directly (department to department form) or transferred to our Surplus department. Surplus takes care of disposal of equipment - if it can be sold surplus take care of that and take a 30% cut. The remainder goes back to the department. (for this purpose my core is a "department"). All equipment for sale is advertised internally for 14 days before it can be sold outside. > > > Ay my former institution in Texas - a state university - they had an interesting system. Capital equipment was inventoried. Surplus equipment was considered to be owned by the state of Texas. Surplus equipment was sent to the surplus warehouse. The warehouse was open for viewing two half days per week and ANY state of Texas organization - e.g. schools, universities - could have equipment transferred to them. I "gave away" equipment to one of the Science Magnate schools there.

Through Google searches I have found programs where labs can voluntarily turn in equipment to a central equipment recycling program (e.g. green labs), but I haven't come across any institutions that require all university purchased equipment to be reviewed/re-inventoried for central administration to handle redistribution to either new recruits, existing labs, core facilities, etc. I'd like to see some examples of policies and procedures that others have used to manage this process. > > Thanks, > > Brian > > ----------------------------- > Brian M.
