CSDS Salvage Process Standards

Date Issued: October 21, 2011 Date Last Revised: September 2015

Salvage Process

CSDS will process computer and printer equipment to the Warehouse & Surplus Store on behalf of supported departments as requested by an Approved Person. To start the salvage process an email will need to be sent to itap@purdue.edu

Please include the following information within the email: Description of the equipment needing salvaged, Make/model, PC or Printer name, Serial Number Location including building and room number Account number (cost/fund) to apply funds if equipment is sold.

Once a ticket has been submitted, CSDS will pick up the equipment from the department. All end-of-life or unusable equipment processed by CSDS will not be advertised to other departments on campus. CSDS will prepare the ECS form on behalf of the customer. All completed ECS forms for CSDS supported departments will be signed by the ITaP Procurement Business Office and forwarded to Property Accounting. Approved electronic ECS forms will be kept on file and a copy sent to the approved person requesting the salvage Service. After Property Accounting approves the form, CSDS will ensure the equipment is sent to the warehouse for sale or scrapped for recycling.

Media Disposal

In order to support the University Media Disposal Guidelines for Electronic-Based Media, all desktop and laptop hard drives will be shredded. Printer hard drives will be removed by the warehouse personnel according to their secure processes.
