  • ≤ $100 (per item or item lot) 100% of proceeds will be retained for Administrative/Program costs.
  • > $100 (per item or item lot) The first $100 and 10% of anything over $100 will be retained for Administrative/Program costs. Ninety percent of proceeds over $100 (per item or item lot) will be returned to the custodial department/FAU.
The distribution of funds will be reviewed annually and adjusted as needed to support the Administrative/Program costs.


Administrative/Program costs include pickup, storage, transportation, disposal fees, advertising, supplies and other costs directly related to the administration of the surplus program. ​​​
