State agencies should consider implementing the two best practices we identified: developing a thorough duty statement for recycling coordinators that includes a list of responsibilities related to e-waste and using vendors from General Services' master services agreement when the agencies need recycling services.
Regarding a thorough duty statement for a recycling coordinator, we mentioned in our audit report that Justice already follows this best practice.
Regarding the use of recyclers from the master services agreement, we noted in our audit report that Justice used vendors from the master services agreement. (See 2009-406, p. 108)
Agency responses received after June 2013 are posted verbatim.
