The Salvage Form must be used when relinquishing obsolete or unwanted equipment, such as PCs, furniture, televisions, tape and video recorders, printers, etc. As per the Office of Surplus Activities, each piece of equipment, from mouse to monitor, must be listed separately on the salvage form. Do not combine items, such as five keyboards or ten mice.
For each of the following items on the form, please follow these guidelines:
- Processor Type: For most computers, you can find the information on the Intel® sticker on the front panel. However if you are unsure of the type of processor, you may check with the Help Desk.
- Monitor Type: display color and screen size, must be clearly indicated on the form.
- Printer Type: Dot matrix, laserjet, or inkjet must be clearly indicated on the form.
- Tag Number: If you are unsure of a tag number, you may obtain the number from your department's inventorial assets list by cross checking the serial number. If you do not provide either the serial number and or the tag number the equipment you are relinquishing will not be removed from your inventorial assets.
Send the completed Equipment Salvage form to the Property Management Office via email. Hard copies of the forms are not required. Upon retrieval of the relinquished equipment, the department head or designee will be required to sign an electronic copy of the form. Please note that all hand written forms, hard copies will be returned to the sender. Forms lacking required information will also be returned.
