Follow-Up Report on Decentralized State Surplus Property Activities, Report No. 97-50, February 1998
Full report in PDF format

  • The Department of Management Services has taken some recommended steps, such as developing a surplus property home page, to improve the state surplus property program. However, it has not taken other recommended steps, such as establishing contracts with regional vendors or auctioneers that deal with surplus property disposal. We continue to believe that these steps are needed and will save money.
  • The Legislature may wish to clarify statutory language to permit agencies to manage their surplus property in a way that allows the value of that property to accrue to the agency.
