State Surplus Computers Working Group

  • Background: Senate Bill 493 (Padilla) gave the Department of General Services (DGS) discretion to facilitate the disposal of surplus state computers within its existing policies and procedures. DGS’ Fleet & Asset Management launched the program on Feb. 24 this year.
  • Goal: Report back to Council on progress so far and assess what additional initiatives (public awareness, including computer centers as a map layer) might increase participation.
  • Members: representatives from DGS, California Technology Agency, CPUC, California Emerging Technology Fund, and computer refurbishers.
