Section 600. State surplus supplies

2 AAC 12.600. State surplus supplies

(a) The chief procurement officer may act on behalf of the state in all matters pertaining to the disposition of surplus supplies. A purchasing agency may not transfer or otherwise dispose of supplies owned by the state without separate statutory authorization or authorization of the chief procurement officer. The authorization, if granted by the chief procurement officer, shall be in writing and include disposal procedures. This subsection does not apply to disposition of surplus supplies by the University of Alaska, the Alaska Court System, or the legislative branch.

(b) A purchasing agency shall notify the chief procurement officer of all surplus supplies on the forms and at the times prescribed by the chief procurement officer.

(c) The chief procurement officer shall offer surplus supplies through spot bids, competitive sealed bids, public auction, established markets, lease, trade or posted prices. If unusual circumstances render the methods required by this subsection impractical, the chief procurement officer may employ other disposition methods, including appraisal or barter.

(d) If the chief procurement officer offers surplus supplies by competitive sealed bid, notice of sale of the surplus supplies must be publicly available from the chief procurement officer at least 10 days before the date set for opening bids.

(e) An employee, contractor, or grantee of an agency that owns or disposes of surplus supplies may not directly or indirectly purchase or agree with another person to purchase surplus supplies if the employee, contractor, or grantee is, or has been, directly or indirectly involved in the disposal, maintenance, or preparation for sale of the surplus supplies. However, the chief procurement officer may authorize the employee, contractor, or grantee to purchase surplus supplies in advance in writing.

(f) The chief procurement officer may offer surplus supplies by negotiated sale, transfer, lease, or donation to local governments, public procurement units, or tax exempt nonprofit organizations when the chief procurement officer determines it to be in the state's best interests.
