Surplus Property

To preserve delegated budget, Procurement Services highly recommend departments to consider re-utilizing assets within the Central Warehouse, when it is cost-effective to do so. The Manager of Central Warehouse is the designated NSU representative for authorizing the approval of surplus property.

Surplus Procedures 

In order to keep an accurate record of all item(s) that is being transferred or sent to surplus property, the following procedures have been created to make the process easier:

  • Identify all item(s) for surplus.
  • An Inventory Change Form is filled out by the transferring department and sent to Central Warehouse with appropriate signatures. Since this form also acts as a work order for surplus property pick up, it is not necessary to submit a separate request.
  • For furniture, equipment, etc. – List all University tag or serial number(s), if applicable.
  • For computers – Contact O.I.T to clear all data before submitting for surplus. Only the items listed on the Inventory Change Form will be picked up.
  • Fax a copy of the Inventory Change form with the Department Head’s signature to 757-823-9129.
  • Inventory Change forms must be submitted by 4:00 p.m. every Thursday in order for surplus to be picked up on Friday mornings.
  • Central Warehouse Manager will then sign the form for approval and notify department of scheduled pick up time, if applicable.
  • Item(s) will then be placed in the Central Warehouse or transferred to another department.

Note: Departments are responsible for surplus until it has been picked up. ** Do not place surplus property in the hallways. **
