The Surplus Equipment Pool consists of furniture and equipment
that has been surplused by various departments on campus,
and is available for reassignment to other departments.
The pool of furniture located in
the Dorland Building is
administered by the Property Control Department, as follows:
- Furnishings placed into the
surplus pool must be structurally sound and in useable
condition "as is."
- Items in the pool, for which
there is no apparent demand by university departments,
will be released to the State surplus depot in Springfield.
- Some items that have minimal
utility value and are not assigned to a department
of the university in a reasonable period of time may
be scrapped for useable parts.
- The transfer of items into and
out of the surplus pool will be authorized by the Manager
of Property Control using a surplus equipment transfer
form, and will be delivered by university movers.
- Furniture may be repaired by
the use of parts or components from other unrepairable
items, and in such cases may be given a new NIU inventory
number before reassignment from the surplus equipment
