Vehicle Surplus

Departments who need to surplus a vehicle should fill out an Equipment Disposition Form (EDF) with the designation "surplus" and appropriate signature in the blue box.  The form should list the license plate in the description field, the vehicle number under property number, the VIN number under serial number, and Auto Surplus as the "To" location.  The form, along with the vehicle, is brought to the Automotive shop to be turned in.  The vehicle is taken into surplus for the semi-annual auction (January/July).
