Public sales are conducted via a monthly sealed bid process. Bid sheets are available at the warehouse and can be completed / submitted during the Wednesday viewing hours. Stock is not added to the bid during the month. Bid sheets must be turned in by the last Wednesday of the month at 2pm. Winning bidders will be notified by telephone the following day. Cash and checks are accepted payment for any awards. California sales tax will be added unless a valid resale certificate is filed. The office furniture is not sold on the bid process, it is sold on a "cash & carry" basis.
UCSD departments can buy items from the surplus store using departmental funds with an IFIS index number. Federally funded contracts or grants may not be used to purchase surplus items. Department buyers do not use the bid process; fixed prices are negotiated depending on equipment age, condition and depreciation. Delivery can be arranged for these purchases, at additional cost.
SENDING EXCESS MATERIEL TO SURPLUS SALES
University owned materiel can be sent to Surplus Sales using the Equipment Inventory Modification Request form (#2032 available from UCSD Storehouse) or the EAMS electronic EIMR form (visit the EAMS web page). If using the paper form 2032, be sure to list any UC identification numbers present on the items. Make sure to include a location, contact name and phone # for the pickup of the materiel. A fax copy to 858-578-9344 will expedite pickup scheduling. Upon pickup of the excess materiel, the signed EIMR must be presented to the movers. Large loads of furniture / equipment may require contracted movers at additional expense.
