Additional Information

This policy does not cover real estate or hazardous materials. Hazardous materials are defined as any property regulated by the state and federal Environmental Protection Agencies. The Surplus Operations Section is not authorized to handle or dispose of any regulated hazardous materials. Hazardous material or property containing such material will not be accepted at the Surplus Warehouse.

Regardless of the method of acquisition, once property title transfers to the university, it becomes Georgia State property. There is no mechanism with the surplus property law that allows for the transfer of state property out of the state of Georgia. The Surplus Operations Section is responsible for the oversight and disposal of all GSU surplus property. The Surplus Operations Sections disposes of property by redistribution to campus departments, state agencies, local governments and eligible non-profits organizations in accordance with the Georgia Department of Administrative Services (DOAS) guidelines.
