Surplus Property

The Surplus Property Office is located in the Central Receiving Warehouse located at 201 St. Felix Street, Stephenville, TX. Surplus Property is defined as “any equipment/goods which is in excess of the needs of the department and which is not required for the department’s foreseeable need” must be turned in to the Surplus Property Office. This also includes institutional furnishings and equipment that may or may not be in need of repair. Departments do not have the flexibility to determine if state goods may be disposed of. By State Law only the Surplus Property Manager or their designee may make this determination.

Computer Equipment

All Computer Processing Units (CPU – the box that houses the hard drive) must be sent to Information Technology Services. Any CPU that is sent to surplus property will be refused and the department will be required to take said CPU to the Information Technology Services Department. Only Information Technology Services staff may bring a CPU to surplus property. Surplus Property can accept computer peripherals such as monitors, keyboards, mice, printers, scanners, fax machines, etc.

Acquisition of Surplus Property

Any item that is in surplus property may be acquired by another department on campus and returned to service. If the item is of inventory value, the item will be transferred to the new using department.

Pick Up of Surplus Property

Central Receiving staff is able to pick up surplus property. However, this pick up occurs as time permits on a daily schedule. If the department is in urgent need for the goods to be picked up, the department may contract with Environmental Services or the department may bring the goods directly to the warehouse.

Surplus Property Auctions

Surplus property auctions will be held throughout the year as needed.  Auctions will be held online with Lone Star Auctioneers:
