Repurposing Goods With Asset Management

Asset Management programs and tools encourage reuse of university property- reducing cost and the environmental impact of waste. MyAssets makes it easier than ever to manage university property. MyAssets is an online tool that greatly speeds up managing asset transactions such as updating property information, transferring property and reporting of surveys. It also gives departments a work list to help manage their departmental assets and be more proactive. Most of these transactions are completed online, eliminating the need to print copies.

The UF Surplus Warehouse offers goods and services to the university and the public. The Surplus Warehouse web site has a link for available property listed by department, so that offices can obtain assets directly from one another. Contact information for the department and person listing the item is available. Additionally, the Surplus Warehouse hosts a Swap Meet website for campus departments to obtain office supplies from other departments instead of purchasing them new.

Another link shows the available property in warehouse in which one can obtain through Asset Management. Items can be seen online without having to physically go to the warehouse. Reservations can be made online for 3 days so that the items can be picked up at a convenient time. The warehouse is open for departments on Mondays through Wednesdays from 10 AM to 2 PM.

After 14 days of UF availability, items are placed up for public auction. Possible items include computers, projectors, printers, automobiles, bikes, and a varied array of scientific equipment.

For further questions or comments, please contact Asset Management at 392-2556.
