Finally, a few reminders from our program staff....
  •  UTILIZATION QUESTIONNAIRE FORMS: If you received property from our program recently, you may be receiving automated emails from "" with Utilization Questionnaire forms that must be completed and returned to document the date an item was put into use. These emails are not SPAM, and the attachments are safe to open. Please add "" to your list of safe or approved senders to ensure you receive these emails. Keep in mind that all items must be put into use within one year of the invoice date. If you wish to cannibalize an item for parts, you must receive prior, written authorization from us. Additionally, you are responsible for ensuring items are stored in a secure location to prevent theft or improper use during the compliance period.
  • RESTRICTIONS ON USE OF PROPERTY: All items received from our program must be put into use within one year of the invoice date. Items with an original value less than $5,000 must be used for a minimum of 12 months. Items with an original value of $5,000 or more must be used for a minimum of 18 months. SBA 8(a) companies must keep the property for the duration of their time in the program. During the restriction period, your organization may not loan, rent, trade, sell, scrap, or otherwise dispose of the item without prior, written authorization from our program.
  • DONEE ADVISORY COMMITTEE: If you would like to volunteer to serve on our Donee Advisory Committee, please contact Courtney Jackson at courtney.jackson@tfc.state.tx or 512-463-9709. The DAC provides us with feedback (typically via email or phone) on our program and helps us identify areas for improvement and new strategies for outreach.
  • MUNICIPALITIES & COUNTIES INTERESTED IN SELLING SEIZED GAMBLING EQUIPMENT – Did you know that Texas Gov’t Code 2175.904 allows you to dispose of gambling equipment using our State Surplus Property Program? If you are interested in setting up an agreement with TFC to auction gambling equipment on your behalf, please contact Judy Beers at or 512-463-4908.
