The College of Agricultural Sciences’ Federal Excess Personal Property (FEPP) program reutilizes federal property. This property is on-loan from federal agencies and returned to the surplus system after it’s no longer of use.
The CAS FEPP program acquires property that present a direct cost-savings to the research. The acquisition of items that provide general enhancement or improvements is a secondary goal.
End User - Researchers and Station Service Personnel
Property Custodian (PC) - Individual Department or Station Coordinator
Accountable Property Officer (APO) - Interface with the FEPP Coordinator
Federal Coordinator (FC) –Federal Oversight by USDA ARS
College of Agricultural Sciences - Oregon Agricultural Experiment Station
Vehicles, heavy equipment, farm equipment, office furniture, lab equipment, tools and various consumable supplies are among the types of property received. Almost every department and unit within the College of Agricultural Sciences utilizes equipment and supplies acquired from the program to assist in carrying out their mission.
Only FEPP property that is 'free' is eligible for OSU acquisition. Property requiring payment or fair market value is not available to OSU through the FEPP program.The only expense to acquire property is transportation/shipping costs.
