273.04 Property acquisition.—Whenever acquiring property, the custodian may pay the purchase price in full or may exchange property with the seller as a trade-in. If, whenever acquiring property, the custodian may best serve the interests of the state by outright sale of property rather than by exchange as a trade-in, the custodian may make the sale in the manner prescribed in this act for the disposal of surplus property.
