When replacing a piece of university equipment such as a safe, there are a few general guidelines to remember:
- Purchase a safe that is fireproof/waterproof and meets the size requirements of your department. It should not be easily moved and if purchasing a digital safe, there should be alternate ways for the safe to be accessed in the event of a dead battery.
- The safe should be placed in an area inaccessible to the general public and with restricted access for departmental personnel.
- Use the MarketPlace first to get the best price on purchasing a new safe.
- Follow Surplus Property procedures to dispose of the old safe.
