If equipment in your department is no longer of use to you, there could be other UB departments, SUNY units or other organizations that would be able to use it.
If asset is owned by Research Foundation (RF) or UB Foundation (UBF), you must get approval before transferring the asset.
Depending on the funding source there are different approval processes necessary before transferring or removing any items. Use these programs in order until you find a way to transfer your equipment:
Contact Asset Management to post your items on the SUNY property control listserv. Include a description of the item, a photo and its current condition. The item will remain on the listserv for two weeks before you should proceed to the next option.
If the item was purchased with state funds and no other departments at UB or another campus can use the item, New York State has a process for posting the item on GovDeals website managed by Office of General Services (OGS) . You should request posting to this site only after the SUNY property control option has been exhausted.
In order to proceed with this a completed Report of Surplus Property must be completed and submitted to asset management with pictures.
If all options for transfer of the item have been exhausted or if the item is in poor condition the item may be disposed.
