“The disposition of university property that is no longer wanted by a unit should be undertaken in such a way to maximize the property’s value to the university, either through redistribution within the university or, upon the approval of University Procurement Services or the appropriate property designee of the campus (e.g. Surplus), through a sale or trade toward a new purchase when the university property is no longer usable within the university. All approved sales will be conducted by either Purchasing or the Indiana University Surplus Stores.”
