Send Items to Lion Surplus
Any University department may send University-owned equipment, supplies, and/or materials that are obsolete, surplus, or scrap to Lion Surplus for disposal. Lion Surplus will sell or dispose of the items as outlined in Procedure BS15. We dispose of all University-owned equipment through sales, bids, auctions, or recycling.
How to Send Items to Lion Surplus
To send your department's surplus materials, you must login SIMBA and create an Asset Transfer and Retirement Form (DOCX) request. If applicable, contact your Financial Officer for form access. Tagged items are valued over $5,000. Chairs, desks, and monitors are examples of non-tagged items. When the form is submitted, it will alert us that an item needs to be picked up.
