Digital Divide | Surplus
Digital Divide Equipment
One component of the Digital Divide Program is increasing the number of first-time home computer families by recycling SBBC's surplus computers to eligible recipients. Computer recycling is grounded in School Board Policy 3202, "DISPOSAL OF SURPLUS AND/OR OBSOLETE PROPERTY," Rules of the Auditor General 10.400, and Florida Statute 274. These guidelines provide the ability to surplus computers off SBBC inventory and make them available to become the property of eligible recipients. Following these guidelines, the Program (Location XDDP) cannot accept any equipment surplus from an SBBC location not meeting the "purchased five-years ago or more" timeframe.
Computers donated to the program must also meet certain "minimum standards." Digital Divide does NOT accept any surplus items other than laptops and desktops. In addition, please know that Digital Divide does NOT accept or repair broken computers. If the computers are not in "good working condition," please contact B-Stock.
Recordkeeping is essential for accountability purposes. A Surplus Form (SBBC form 3290A) must be completed by all schools/departments so that the equipment donated to the Digital Divide Program may come off that inventory and into the Digital Divide's. In turn, once the equipment is donated to Program participants, RECIPIENTS must also complete ALL applicable forms (ERF and SEUSLA). Forms must be completed in their entirety and must include dates and signatures where required.
