Welcome to the USPA

The University Surplus Property Association has been training, developing and educating Universities and Colleges and providing consulting assistance for new managers and programs for over two decades. You will learn how to securely wipe data from equipment, how to assist your organization in recouping funds and contribute to an organization's sustainability by reusing and repurposing items, determine high value metals, landfill diversion techniques and ideas on how to up-cycle furniture that might not normally sell. The USPA is the association to help your surplus program succeed.
