  Effective Disposal Methods of Personal Property 

Disposal of property and materials is a significant issue with all companies and government agencies.  No one wants to dedicate resources to dispose of property that is no longer needed by the organization.  Additionally, in recent years, laws and regulations governing the disposition of property and materials have increased and changed significantly.  Therefore, property disposal personnel must be extremely efficient in their efforts to excess unneeded property and materials - both to reduce costs and to comply with laws and regulations.  This class covers all aspects of property disposal, including regulations and methods to use for donations, excessing and disposal.

Topic Overview:

  • Disposal Laws and Regulations
  • Excess Property Identification and Evaluation Techniques
  • Items Requiring Special Handling
  • Reutilization and Screening
  • Donations and Transfers
  • Trade-Ins and Exchange Sale
  • Property Valuation
  • Property Sales

Core Benefits:

After successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Understand what regulations currently exist for excessing and disposing of
  • personal property.
  • Understand GSA requirements for screening, donations and transfers.
  • Set-up an effective reutilization and screening program.
  • Understand the importance of controlling and tracking trade-ins and exchange sale items.
"I found this class to be extremely helpful in providing me and my organization with effective ideas for the proper disposal of our property.  The class also brought to light several regulation compliance issues we may encounter in designing our disposal program, which allowed us to be more proactive in our approach to compliance.  The class also made me very aware that much of what we had been discarding as "waste" could actually have a valuable resell market, and where I could find more information on those specific markets.  I have found myself referring to my notes from the class more and more, especially in the current economic and political climate, which has stressed an increase in revenue, transparency of operations, and regulation compliance.  I would have been lost without this course.  Thank you Marcia and Cheri! -- C.
