Does the institution have a surplus department or formal office supplies exchange program that facilitates reuse of materials?:

A brief description of the program:

When inventoried property is no longer useful but still in workable condition the Property Accountant sends an all staff email letting other departments know of the availability. If no departments are in need of the item, the Property Survey Board determines if the item can be traded-in, cannibalized, or donated to a not-for-profit.

For non-inventoried items, FGCU's Staff Advisory Council Organize an annual supply swap giving the opportunity for departments to clean out their offices and trade non capital items, such as pens, manila folders, small equipment, toner, or binders with other departments that might need them.
