NMU is listing surplus asset items for auction on the Public Surplus website. Initially, items will be listed for 14 days internally for NMU departments to claim, free-of-charge, for university-use only. After this period, the items will be made available to the public for anyone to bid on. Bidding instructions and terms & conditions can be viewed on the website. 

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE - internal departmental use only, not for personal purchases:

  2. The case sensitive registration code is for NMU use only and should not be provided to anyone who is not currently employed by NMU. Please email Dan Lynch in the Purchasing Department at email address for the case sensitive registration code to access the internal use items.
  3. Once registered, your department will be given a link to the auction site.
  4. Even though it is listed as an internal “auction," there will be no cost if claimed by your department for university purposes.
  5. Surplus items will be posted as they become available, so we recommend departments check the site weekly to see what new items are listed.
