Procedure - Sale, Trade or Disposal of Equipment

When the College’s equipment reaches the end of its useful life, becomes inoperable, becomes obsolete or is replaced, the College, without the approval of the State Board of Community Colleges, may use any of the following to depose of said equipment:

1. Transfer the equipment to another community college.

2. Dispose of the equipment through the State Surplus Property Agency.

3. Sell or exchange the equipment (i.e., personal property) pursuant to Article 12, Chapter 160A of the North Carolina General Statutes.

4. Cannibalize or recycle the equipment (see page 73 of the N.C. Community College Purchasing and Equipment Procedures Manual entitled “Cannibalization of Equipment”).

Should the capitalized asset be determined to have no useful value and cannot be traded, sold, cannibalized or recycled, it may then be discarded.
