SPA Process User’s Guide – Chapter 5 – Updating Property and Funds

Updating Hard Disposal Methods

The Update Hard Disposal Methods (PAUHDM) screen allows agencies to change disposal methods 03, 04, 08–18, 20–30. Only agencies exempt from the surplus process can use disposal methods 04 and 22.

Users that can update this screen have a designated title code of P (property manager) or A (alternate property manger) and a security profile of 01.

Fields that can be updated include:

  • New Disposal Method
  • Reason for Change

Note: Soft Disposals Methods are changed in the Disposal of Property (PADLET) screen. Soft disposal methods include 05, 6b, 7a, 7b and 19.


  1. Access the Update Hard Disposal Methods (PAUHDM) screen on the Main Menu.
  2. Enter the property number to be updated in the PROPERTY field.
  3. Enter the component number to be updated in the COMPONENT field.
  4. Press Enter. Information previously entered in the system and the message Enter New Disposal Method Cd appears.
  5. Enter the new disposal method in the NEW DISPOSAL METHOD field.
  6. Enter the reason for changing from current disposal method to a new disposal method in the REASON FOR CHANGE field.
  7. Enter a component comment in the COMPONENT COMMENT field.

    Note: This is an optional field but it is preferred if the new disposal method is 08 or 09. Enter the political subdivision or assistance organization and location here. A comment can be entered or updated for all disposal methods but if there is an existing component comment, it will be overwritten if updated. Mandatory for DM28-30.

  8. Press Enter. The message Press F4 to Update information or F5 to CANCEL appears.
  9. Press F4. The message Information Has Been Updated appears.

    Note: There is an agency-requestable report that lists all property with updated hard disposal methods (SPA 00010) within a specified date range.
