The Surplus Property Disposal Request System (SPDRS) is an online tool through which registered government organizations create requests to have their surplus items re-distributed. As items reach the end of their usefulness for your organization, other organizations may find use for those items redistributed through our program.
For customers whose organization / agency already uses Surplus Disposal Services, see current customers section below.
To use the SPDRS system, your organization will need to enter into a contract with Surplus Operations to use their services. You will need to send an email request to Surplus Disposal. In the subject line write: Surplus Property Disposal Request System Registration. In the body of the email, include:
Upon approval, Surplus Disposal will email you a contract for these services. This contract will need to be printed, signed by the entity at your organization who has signing authority (director, manager, etc.), scanned and returned by email to Surplus Disposal. Management will review the contract and a fully executed copy will be emailed back to you upon approval.
Once the contract is signed, approved, counter signed and returned to you, we will be able to create a profile for you in the SPDRS system. When creating an access profile, a “rights” level needs to be assigned. There are three levels:
If there is a question as to eligibility status or to inquire if they are already on a contract to use our service please contact Surplus Disposal.
If you agency/organization already uses Surplus Disposal Services, they may have a representative or a approver established that you must go through to request use of the SPDRS system. Here is a list of Agencies that have a Surplus Disposal approver/representative established with Surplus:
If your agency is not on this list, but already uses Surplus Disposal Services, they may also have an internal process for approving who can ask for access. It is best practice to consult current users of the system in your organization to confirm if any internal agency surplus procedures are required. Contact Surplus Disposal if you do not know who your representative is.
To submit a disposal request you will need the following:
Once Surplus Disposal receives reviews and processes the document, the submitter and contact person will receive a system-generated e-mail with the Surplus Approval number and any further instructions specific to the document.
