Merchandise and equipment no longer usable for the purpose for which it was acquired or built, shall be declared surplus by the head of the department to which the merchandise or equipment has been assigned.  The equipment and appliances will then be inspected by the Maintenance Department to determine if they are usable or should be declared surplus.  If the items are declared surplus, the Superintendent shall notify the Board that the items are declared surplus.


The Pointe Coupee Parish School Board will then call for sealed bids for the sale of such merchandise or equipment and said bids will be opened publicly and disposed of in a prudent, businesslike manner.  The School Board shall reserve the right to accept or reject any and all bids.  The sale of surplus merchandise or equipment shall be final, on the "as is" or "where is" basis and shall carry no warranties whatsoever.  If not sold after public auction, these items will be sold as junk, or if no salvage value can be realized, destroyed in the most economical manner possible.
