The Estates Directorate administers a budget for the supply and repair of furniture. As far as possible, the Directorate aims to recycle second-hand furniture throughout the University. If suitable furniture does not already exist within a School/Directorate/Unit, a new member of staff is entitled to have furniture supplied and what is supplied varies slightly depending on the category of staff e.g. a Professor would probably require more bookcases than a clerical member of staff. Further information on the national furniture tender and details of local suppliers can be viewed on the Purchasing website. If you require furniture or advice on purchasing furniture, contact Lorraine McCallum on extension 1033 or email@example.com.
