What is Decommissioning and Disposition?

What is Decommissioning and Disposition?

Decommissioning and disposition is the planning for and process of taking furniture, equipment, and technology and/or the space they occupy, out of service. These lifecycle changes can be due to obsolescence, relocation, resizing, or other operational changes. Whether reconfiguring, storing, recycling, or donating your assets, the goal of disposition and decommissioning management is to maximize return on investment while minimizing waste and environmental impact.

and disposition management?

 
Any company with furniture, fixtures, and equipment (FF&E) and office or facility space will eventually need to handle disposition and decommissioning. With the workspace landscape changing so rapidly in recent years, managing these processes is more important than ever. IT equipment in any office requires knowledgeable handling of stored data and certain businesses, like hospitals and financial institutions, have special disposition and decommissioning needs relating to health, financial, and other sensitive data.

GWS Decommissioning and Disposition Services

When managed effectively, disposition and decommissioning is more than an afterthought of office relocations – it’s a vital component in the lifecycle of facility and asset management. With GWS as a partner, you will have the knowledge, technology, and experience to handle end of lifecycle decisions responsibly, efficiently and with an eye on the bottom line.

After we inventory and categorize your items, we use our customizable technology to create an inventory database. With details about item classification, warranty status, and even pictures, this virtual catalog helps us to maximize the value of your assets and return a net profit to you by making recommendations for liquidation, recycling, and donation.

Our sustainability decommissioning program includes the option to incorporate a robust environmental stewardship program. Through our partnership with an award-winning, woman-owned, 501(c)(3) company, we match and steward office furniture, appliances, supplies, and building materials back to the community, serving local schools, non-profits, and public agencies.

In addition to impacting the triple bottom line (People, Planet, Prosperity), clients’ decommissioning results are independently audited, resulting in a detailed tax receipt for donations. Clients also receive a certificate which features the total landfill diversion in metric tons, and the separate categories the surplus took through reuse, resale, repurpose, and recycle.
