Some Suppliers will accept a trade-in of old equipment for a discount on the price of new equipment. Use this process when requesting the trade-in of equipment (i.e., vehicles, lab equipment, farm equipment, etc.)

NOTE: Purchase Order cannot be issued until CMS and Fixed Assets in Accounting have approved the Inventory/Equipment Change of Status form.

Requesting Department should complete and submit a Inventory/Equipment Change of Status form along with a Purchase Requisition listing the new equipment to Purchasing.

Purchasing will forward the Inventory/Equipment Change of Status form to Fixed Assets in Accounting for approval by CMS. Buyer will seek competitive bids, if applicable. Once approval of the Change of Status has been received, Buyer will convert Purchase Requisition into a Purchase Order listing the discount for the trade-in equipment.
