Federal Surplus Property


The State of North Carolina operates a Federal Surplus Property Warehouse in Raleigh for use by State agencies desiring Federal Surplus Property. The warehouse is located at 1950 Old Garner Road. Federal Surplus Property is available to the University at a minimal charge. A wide assortment of supplies and equipment is regularly available, with many items appropriate to the needs of University departments.


Authorization to use the surplus facility is obtained from the University Procurement Services Office upon request. Only those items which have a known value to a department and which have relatively immediate application should be purchased. Motor vehicles and office machines may be acquired only after approval by the University's Business and Finance Office.

Use of Items

Items obtained from Federal surplus must be used in accordance with instructions on the signed agreement prepared by the Federal Property Agency. Federal Surplus Property may not be acquired for personal use nor can it be disposed of except in accordance with printed instructions on the agreement form. Major equipment items normally have substantial restrictions on use and length of use.
