About the IT Asset Disposition Program with Cascade
Contract #GS-10F-190BA, valid through June 29, 2019
We understand that choosing an IT asset retirement partner is a significant decision. As a federal agency, you are also subject to special requirements related to the secure and environmentally responsible disposition of electronic assets and must comply with GSA Bulletin FMR B-34 “Disposal of Federal Electronic Assets.” Cascade can help!
Cascade is recognized as a national leader in responsible IT asset management, having been twice listed on the Gartner North American Magic Quadrant for IT Asset Disposition. More importantly, we have earned the trust of our clients, which is the essential component of our IT asset retirement process.
Our value to government agencies:
- Maximize value from recoverable equipment;
- Minimize handling, compliance and reporting costs;
- Meet data security requirements for the agency;
- Meet environmental regulation requirements for the agency;
- Integrate easily with existing disposal processes; and,
- Improve the agency’s ROI on IT assets.
ITAD services for federal agencies using the GSA contract
Cascade will collect and transport IT assets owned by federal agencies and will process each agency’s IT assets in our Madison, WI or Indianapolis, IN facilities for secure and responsible disposition. Received assets are sorted, inventoried, evaluated for reuse or recycling, cleared of all data and corporate identification using NIST 800-88 compliant wiping (one pass on hard drives), tested and repaired for resale (if possible), and demanufactured for recycling. Agencies have a choice as to how equipment is processed for disposition in accordance with their internal requirements.
Teaming arrangements with Prime Contractors that benefit them and the taxpayer
Cascade can also partner with Prime Contractors servicing federal agencies through Seat Management or IT leasing programs by providing them with a convenient, secure, and compliant means of disposition that can generate significant revenue to offset purchases of new IT equipment by the federal government using the Exchange/Sale Authority of FMR Part 102-39. Cascade also helps contractors meet their small business and minority spend goals due to our status.
