Surplus

Description: 

This form should be used for departments to request the acquisition of surplus property. This process is for department use only, not for personal use. You will have to be connected to the UC Merced Network to access this tool. Select the option to log in as a guest. If you see an item that you are interested in, please copy the surplus number and the description of the item. You can also view items that are currently on auction at Public Surplus at the following link: https://www.publicsurplus.com/sms/list/current?tm=m&sma=y. If there is an item on the auction that you are interested in for department use, copy the auction number and submit a request as soon as possible so we can stop the auction.

Notes:

  • Students are not authorized to request surplus property. The request must come from a faculty or staff member.
  • Many of our items are free of charge, but some items do have a cost. If there is a transfer of funds involved, the requesting department must provide a COA. A COA is not required for no cost items.
