Disposal Method 5r (Surplus/Rejected by TFC)

This disposal method is generated by TFC and cannot be entered in SPA by an agency or SPA staff.

TFC uses this code for property that has been rejected for advertisement on the TFC Surplus Property website. Reasons for rejection include, but are not limited to, incorrect VIN or incomplete asset information. Agencies must contact TFC to learn the reason for rejection.

This code is also used by TFC for property that an agency has advertised as surplus in error, or needs a correction to data entered by the agency. Agencies must contact TFC to request the asset be reported to SPA as a 5r for corrections or removal from the process.

Agencies must remove the property from 5r following the procedures below and then correct the errors and re-enter the property in the surplus process.


  1. Access the Disposal of Property (PADLET) screen on the Main Menu.
  2. Enter the property and component number.
  3. Press Enter.
  4. Use the space bar to space through the 5r.
  5. Press Enter. The asset is now in active status.

To correct information and re-enter the property in the surplus process, see Disposal Method 05 – Surplus Property Process.
