Property Control


The mission of the Property Control unit is to inventory, safeguard, transfer/reassign, and dispose of equipment and furniture assets of the College in accordance with College policies and applicable state and federal regulations. One of this unit’s major goals is to help maintain departmental inventories in as current a condition as possible. To accomplish this, the unit depends on departments’ cooperation in promptly reporting all changes in equipment status. This includes changes in ownership and location, stolen or lost equipment, and the transfer of equipment to surplus. Following are brief guidelines for transferring equipment and furniture to a surplus status.

All departments are encouraged to utilize surplus property to help meet their equipment and furniture needs. Contact Property Control at 240-567-5293 to find out about the availability of surplus items and to make an appointment to view them.

  1. Form 3A: To request a department to department transfer of item(s).
  2. Form 5A: To request a pickup of items within a department, at a single physical location.

  1. Item Description- Indicate the name of the asset.
