28 CFR 70.33 - Federally-owned and exempt property.
(1) Title to Federally-owned property remains vested in the Federal Government. Recipients may be required by the terms and conditions of the award, to submit annually an inventory listing of Federally-owned property in their custody to the Department. Upon completion of the award or when the property is no longer needed, the recipient must report the property to the Department for further Federal agency utilization.
(2) If the Department has no further need for the property, it will be declared excess and reported to the General Services Administration, unless the Department has statutory authority to dispose of the property by alternative methods (e.g., the authority provided by the Federal Technology Transfer Act (15 U.S.C. 3710 (I)) to donate research equipment to educational and non-profit organizations in accordance with Exec. Order No. 12821, “Improving Mathematics and Science Education in Support of the National Education Goals.”) Appropriate instructions shall be issued to the recipient by the Department.
(b) Exempt property. When statutory authority exists, the Department may vest title to property acquired with Federal funds in the recipient without further obligation to the Federal Government when such property is “exempt property.”
