Inspection on the Management of Excess Personal Property at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (Livermore) has a personal property inventory of over 53,500 line items with an acquisition value of over $823 million. It generates thousands of excess personal property items each year. In FY 2000, for example, Livermore excessed over 12,000 items of personal property with an acquisition value of over $59 million. These items were disposed of through reutilization, donations, and public sales. Our inspection evaluated the economy and efficiency of Livermore’s management of excess personal property.
