Chapter 6 – Deleting Property and Funds

Disposal Method 09 (Surplus Property Donated or Sold to an Assistance Organization)

This disposal method is used to delete surplus property donated or sold to an assistance organization. Assets are required to complete the 10-day TFC advertisement before they can be sold or donated to an assistance organization. The following steps must be completed before an asset can be disposed with disposal method 09:
  1. Asset must be entered in the TFC Surplus Process in SPA and complete the 10-day advertisement period. If an assistance organization contacts the agency to request the property during the TFC advertisement period, the organization must wait for the full 10-day advertisement period to complete. Requests from state agencies have priority over any other organizations during the entire advertisement period. If no state agency requests the property, the first organization requesting the property and agreeing to the price will be awarded the property.
  2. Once the advertisement is complete, verify that the assistance organization is eligible to receive assets from the state using the TFC Approved Assistance organizations list.
  3. Contact TFC to request approval to donate or sell the asset to the assistance organization. Include a list of the asset numbers in the email.
  4. TFC, in conjunction with the agency, will determine the sales price, if any, for each item.
  5. Complete any TFC required procedures.
  6. TFC will then update the disposal method to a 5c in SPA. The asset must be in DM 5c before it can be updated to 09.
  7. After the organization has picked up the property, update the disposal method to 09 in SPA.
