The need to effectively and efficiently dispose of surplus or outdated materials is critical to the fiduciary responsibility of any governmental entity. Public procurement professionals must not only create processes and procedures by which they can safely and efficiently dispose of surplus, excess, and scrap materials but also determine those elements that must be met in order to safely dispose in accordance with the law.
