RECYCLED FURNITURE

(contract last updated 08/30/2021)

SCOPE:     This contract is designed to offer University departments an alternative to buying new furniture.  Furniture must be 95% or greater recycled with only connectors, electrical or other components being new only to complete an assembly or installation. 

 

State of Wisconsin agencies are required to purchase New Office Furniture according to mandatory Department of Administration statewide contracts and Wisconsin State Statute 16.75(3t) regarding mandatory Badger State Industries (BSI) purchasing.  Bids for new products will not be accepted or considered (see Section 2.2 Definitions).  The purpose of this contract is to offer University departments an alternative to buying new products.  Expected advantages to using this contract include:

  • Price reductions of 30-50% compared to new products
  • Products that are readily available with reduced delivery timelines
  • Reduced energy required compared to first-time manufacturing
  • Option of refurbishing or remanufacturing existing furniture
  • Reduced environmental impact compared to the use of new products
  • Ability to contribute LEED points to University projects

 

NOTE:  University departments are required to contact Facilities Planning and Management (FP&M) prior to ordering furniture with electrical components.

 

University departments may also use this contract to request additional services, including reconfiguration, remanufacturing or refurbishing of existing UW-Madison furniture, or inventory maintenance and/or disposal of furniture approved by UW SWAP (Surplus with a Purpose).
