POLICY OBJECTIVE

This policy articulates the CSU’s requirements related to disposal of vehicles to ensure procurement and contracting activities are in compliance with applicable regulations.

POLICY STATEMENT

A campus vehicle may be discarded, traded in, or sold whenever the campus determines it is within its best interests to do so, regardless of age or mileage, or at such time as the vehicle has been determined to be unsafe for continued use, or when it no longer serves the purpose for which it was acquired. Options for the disposal of a vehicle can include (1) surveying it to the DGS State Surplus Property Division, (2) transferring it to the DGS Fleet Administration Division, and (3) liquidating it through competitive bidding or auction at the maximum price attainable in the open market.

Sales of all publicly-owned vehicles, including any owned by the CSU, are governed by provisions within the California Vehicle Code.
