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

A brief description of the program:

Northern Arizona University is required by law to maximize use of all assets and, when it has no further use for them, maximize returns on their sale. We are not allowed to give surplus property away. The Surplus Property Department is the only NAU department authorized to dispose of surplus property. The primary role of the Surplus Property department is to ensure that the excess property generated by NAU will be handled in a method that both maximizes the return to the University and meets the disposal requirements of the state and federal governments.

Departments may use property surplus to obtain used materials on campus and when materials are not used within the University, they are sold to the public.

Also, the Office of Sustainability promotes supply exhcnages within buildings on campus. An article explaining the program can be found at: http://home.nau.edu/purchasing/surplus/
