Materials Management - Surplus 

WKU Surplus manages all university assets that departments no longer needs. This includes furniture, electronics (excluding computers), vehicles, lab equipment, office supplies, and any other item purchased by the university. Items transferred to Surplus are available for reuse on campus first, after which surplus assets may be auctioned on GovDeals.com, transferred to other governmental agencies, donated to local non-profit organizations, recycled, or disposed of in the landfill (if asset is of no value).

All items in Surplus are reserved for reuse on campus. Once an item is no longer needed on campus, Surplus will auction the item on Govdeals.com.

Yes! But only after we have determined that the item can not be reused on campus. Surplus items are auctioned on a rolling basis on Govdeals.com, and each auction lasts between 7-days and 2 weeks. Please visit Govdeals.com for more information and to register as a Govdeals bidder.
