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:

Surplus Management stores office equipment and furniture for departments around the university to reuse supplies. This process will help enable the Assets Management warehouse staff to gain access to the furniture and equipment and create a dialogue between Assets Management and the University of Florida Departments and Colleges with regard to picking up furniture and equipment.

There is a listserve and a "swap-meet" website for exchange of materials below the asset threshold and for interoffice exchange before pickup by Asset Management.
