State Surplus – Property Distribution Center for State Agencies to Surplus and Claim Electronic Equipment
What should we do with our computers and broken electronics?
Answer: Computers cannot be sold on Public Surplus even if they are in good condition. Computers, laptops and the old CRT (tube) monitors should still be listed on the PDC System so they can be offered to other state agencies, municipalities and non-profits and if not claimed can still go through the electronics recycling vendor process with no problem. Broken electronics should be posted on the PDC system as scrap to go through the process for electronic recycling, as well. Good electronics, such as flat screen monitors, keyboards, mice, speakers, etc. are sold on Public Surplus.
Do I have to upload a picture?
Answer: You do not need to upload photos on the PDC System.
A non-profit claimed some of my items. What do I do with the paperwork?
Answer: Have the non-profit sign the paperwork at pickup and scan and email it to Veronica Coty. Keep the original for your records for auditing purposes.
How long do we need to keep paperwork for?
Answer: Refer to the CT State Library Records Retention Schedules for appropriate time to hold records. You can also speak to your agency’s RMLO (Records Management Liaison Officer).
