IUPUI requires departments to send all computers and related equipment to the Surplus warehouse. If your department is sending computers to Surplus, please follow the procedure outlined below.
If any Hard Drives/Disks/Data Devices were utilized to store patient data, social security numbers, or other sensitive data, it is recommended the department remove the device prior to sending it to Surplus.
Departments are required to indicate a computer's hard disk/data device is removed prior to sending it to Surplus; this should be indicated on the Surplus Pick-Up/Drop-Off Form attached to the unit.
Hard drive disposal is managed by Surplus through a shredding program contracted through Vendor Asset Recovery Services.
