Surplus items are being placed on the Public Surplus internal posting area for university departments to claim prior to being offered to the general public. Items are listed for 14 days on the internal site and can be claimed by any department for NMU use only. Items listed will be available on a first-come basis at no cost to the department. After 14 days, the item converts to the public auction forum where the general public can bid on it. Departments in need of items should contact the Central Warehouse at 227-2776 to check on availability and if they need instructions to access to the Public Surplus internal site.
