Furniture & Furnishings Policy

The Purchasing department manages on-campus furniture, furnishings and equipment and outside vendor relationships for optimal utilization and distribution and for best quality and pricing.

Purchasing also maintains a small inventory of furniture for office use (file cabinets, desks, bookcases, modular panels, etc.).  To communicate your furniture or furnishing needs, please complete a Furniture Request Form.  Use this form to request any new furniture/furnishings, relocation of existing furniture, or removal of furniture to or from storage. When evaluating furniture requests all attempts will be made to utilize existing furniture and current inventory.  Allow a 5-7 business day turnaround to process your request.  To expedite a request, research the item and email the results to the purchasing director at  A minimum of three quotes are required.

General Provisions Regarding Furniture:

  • Under no circumstances should any employee attempt to move furniture unless it is within one's private office. All furniture moves must be approved by Purchasing.
  • Office furniture is permanently assigned to an office space and does not move if an employee is relocated to another office. All major office moves involving furniture must be approved by Purchasing. Please submit a Facility Services Office Move Work Order. Floor plans/layouts and a walk-thru by a facility services and Purchasing representative may be required.
  • Upon approval from Purchasing, all minor furniture moves should be submitted on a Facility Services Work Order.
  • Schools and departments are prohibited from purchasing furniture/furnishings/equipment without the purchasing director's approval.  If approved, furnishings may be placed on the purchasing card.
