Our mission is to Protect all BYU employees against compromising situations, and help BYU optimize its return for surplus property.

Departments and/or university employees are not authorized to conduct the sale of any university owned item(s) that have been deemed to be surplus. Likewise, no items owned by the university may be given away (or taken) by any person or entity, even if said item(s) have been identified as scrap, or discarded as refuse. University personnel who wish to obtain ANY surplus item(s), must do so through established surplus policy. Questions should be directed to the Purchasing Department's Surplus Management Team, (2-3872).
