1. INTRODUCTION

Equipment, supplies, textbooks, and all other materials and personal property items purchased through the University (from all funding sources whatsoever) and gifts of personal property items given to the University are state-owned property. Under no circumstances can state-owned property be donated, sold, traded-in, transferred or given to another person, entity, department or unit without appropriate approval of the University Fixed Assets and Surplus Property Departments, in accordance with State Surplus Property Office procedures. A University employee, upon leaving the University, may not take State- or Federally-owned property to a new place of employment without obtaining advance approvals.
