We have had abandoned classified Government property on our books for almost 20 years. The equipment is outdated and not been maintained as it is not prototypical of anything in the active inventory. The Government wants to leave it where it is because they cannot reach internal agreement to scrap the equipment and they will not pay us for storage. Requests for disposition have been dissapproved. Twenty years ago, the equipment had a replacement value of $500K. Having designed the equipment, we can say that today it has no real value beyond scrap; however, replacing the equipment with known obsolesence issues could cost tens of millions for a redesign. Recently, the equipment was severely damaged by an act of God. If the Government wants to be reimbursed for the damage, how do we value that reimbursement? We believe it's the scrap value of the metal.
