Central Receiving/Warehouse



The Warehouse serves as the receiving area for truck shipments and the temporary storage of university property. In situations where direct delivery to departments is not possible, or forklift services are required to offload the shipment, the Warehouse can service departments by using the online Work Order Request system. The rates will depend upon the resources needed to offload and deliver the shipment.


All equipment with a unit cost of $5,000 or more, unless otherwise directed by Purchasing, must be delivered to the Warehouse, assigned an Inventory number, and tagged by the Warehouse Manager. If a piece of equipment is delivered off campus or will be located off campus a Location Form for Off-Campus Property form must be completed and sent to the Warehouse Manager.

Department Transfers/Equipment Changes

The Request for Change in Accountability form should be used by all departments to report any changes of accountability to equipment items, which includes: location changes, trade-in's, transfers to other administrative units, return to Grantor, Surplus Requests, and Missing items. All forms need to be signed and returned to the Warehouse Manager.

Off Campus Property Use

If state property needs to be removed from campus for job-related activities, a Tennessee Tech Property Loan Request form must be completed and returned to the lending department for retention purposes.

Surplus Property

The Warehouse Manager is responsible for the disposal of all Surplus property. A Work Order Request should be submitted for any Surplus pickups. Please note that when a tagged piece of equipment is declared Surplus, a Request for Change in Accountability form must be completed and sent to the Warehouse Manager. For security purposes, all computers must be properly processed by the Information Technology Services department prior to being picked up as Surplus. The Warehouse holds online auctions for the sale of Surplus property via the website. Surplus property is available for viewing by university employees on Tuesday mornings from 8-11:00 a.m. and Friday afternoons from 12-3:00 p.m.
