BACKGROUND: 

In accordance with NRS Chapter 244.1505(2)(a), the County may donate commodities, supplies, materials and equipment that the Board of County Commissioners determines to have reached the end of their useful live, to various nonprofit organizations or another governmental entity. The donations may be used for any purpose that will provide a substantial benefit to the inhabitants of the County.

Throughout the year, the Information Technology Department and other departments identify miscellaneous computers, peripherals/supplies, electronics, and telecommunications devices that have reached the end of their useful lives and are designated as surplus property.

Donation of the surplus computers, peripherals/supplies, electronics, and telecommunications devices will enable the Blind Center of Nevada to employ, and provide benefits and programs in support of, the blind and visually impaired inhabitants of the County.

The Blind Center is non-profit and certified as a R2 (Responsible Recycling System for Electronics) and ISO 14001 and 45011 certified, meeting NRS requirements. Additionally, since the last BCC Resolution, the Blind Center has added to their data destruction capabilities which include a hard drive shredder for those who want physical destruction and software that has international security certifications and covers HIPAA, FACTA and the Data Protection Act standards to ensure data security in the disposition of the above-mentioned items. Finally, there are only two non-profit facilities in Nevada that meet the NRS standards of non-profit and recycling standards; besides the Blind Center in Las Vegas the other is up near Reno and distance presents a challenge.
