Background Discussion
  • Appropriate memorandum and excess lists were sent to all Department Directors via the iNet.
  • Each of the computers listed on the surplus list have been examined by Information Technology Department staff.  Based on information available, all are missing key components, i.e., Windows Operating System, hard drives, memory, RAM, etc., which make them unusable; or it was determined that it is uneconomical to make them capable of handling the current version of the Windows Operating System or other software.
  • Surplus radios listed have been approved by the Public Safety Radio Shop for disposal.
  • Equipment sold at auction generates revenue for the County general fund, and a percentage of generated revenue to Public Works for administrative fees.
