UIS Equipment Transfer and Disposal Procedures



Disposal of electronic equipment (desktop and laptop computers only) is handled by UIS Information Technology Services. Individual departments must submit a transfer request in FABweb to transfer the equipment to UIS Information Technology Services, who will then complete data wiping, internal redistribution, and disposal. The new responsible COA and Org are 4-305002. Step-by-step procedures are attached.

Disposal of non-electronic equipment (anything sent to the UIS surplus building) is initiated by submitting a surplus/disposal request in FABweb. Once the request has been completed and approved by the department, it is reviewed by University Property Accounting & Reporting (UPAR) staff. After UPAR staff review and approve the request, they send an Excel spreadsheet to the department representative. The department representative must forward the approval and spreadsheet to the UIS Facilities and Services staff by emailing Facilities Scheduling and Services staff will contact the department to schedule the removal.



Transfers between departments are handled by completing a transfer request in FABweb. Once the originating and receiving departments have both approved the request in FABweb, the property contact of the receiving department must use the “Save to Excel” functionality to create a spreadsheet. To arrange for moving the equipment, attach the spreadsheet to an e-mail and send to at UIS Facilities and Services. It is your department’s responsibility to forward the spreadsheet to UIS Facilities and Services. UPAR is not involved in reviewing or approving these transfers.

NOTE:  FABweb transfers are currently coded to require at least one Tagged/Controlled equipment item, but you can use FABweb for any items by first adding a valid PTag and then deleting that PTag from the list after all non-tagged equipment has been added.
