Procurement Surplus Program Puts Money Back into the Budget
Following the adage that "one man's junk is another man's treasure," Procurement Services began a new program in December 2014 selling off items that are no longer needed by some Drexel departments.
Since the program began, Drexel Surplus Property has sold more than 300 individual and grouped items including full rooms of furniture, athletic equipment, lab equipment, computer equipment and collectibles. Sales are in excess of $38,000 and savings tied to avoiding a removal fee for those items exceeds $44,000.
Not all items are sold away from Drexel, as some are re-pruposed or re-directed to other parts of the University.
The program both returns money to the departments' budgets and is an important green initiative.
