BSOE Surplus Operations
BELS handles surplus operations for BSOE with support from the BELS student employee staff. The student staff pickup surplus equipment and take it to our central holding area. There the staff make a record of it and arrange for campus surplus operations pickup. Equipment taken to BSOE surplus is assumed to no longer be of use to the owner and they have release it to BELS for use anywhere. BELS staff working with others in BSOE, may find another use for it locally or may turn the items over to UCSC surplus operations. At no time does this operation simply store equipment and material for a group. Storage of material should be arranged separately with BSOE facilities operations. Facilities operations may require payment for storage costs.
For surplus equipment, fill out and tape to equipment this form.
For a significant amount of stuff, please fill out to the best of your ability this form too.
