Office Furniture

Surplus

If you require furniture, but don't have the funds to buy new, surplus furniture could be supplied at no cost to your department. The Facilities department keeps track of all surplus furniture available for redistribution. Contact Facilities with a description of the item you are looking for, and if available (limited supply), you will be asked to submit a Facilities Work Request for the delivery and installation in the designated space. If you have furniture no longer required by yourself or your department, please submit a Facilities Work Request, and it will be relocated to surplus.

New Furniture

The Purchasing Division is responsible for ordering new standard furniture items including chairs, meeting tables, bookcases and standard 30" x 60" desks. A systems contract is in place with an Preferred Supplier to ensure consistency in pricing, aesthetics and safety. If custom furniture is necessary, the Space Planning Coordinator can design a layout for the space and create a plan for approval. 

Please Note: The average lead time for furniture orders is 6-8 weeks from the time Purchasing receives the order (SPR).
