AFMC launches surplus supply site

Air Force Materiel Command has launched a “Unit-Purchased Supplies Efficiency” site to help the command manage surplus supplies and equipment.

All AFMC employees have access to the site – an Enterprise Information Management / SharePoint site – and they can post a listing of any excess supplies they have in their units. Similarly, employees can check for available supplies or equipment, sorted by location, to “shop” for what they need. The idea is to create savings by repurposing supplies.

“The site allows quick access to view items that are available — at no cost,” said Eddie Robinson, a change management specialist in the Program Integration & Business Operations Branch. “This is an AFMC consolidated site, so people can sort and view items by base. It allows for easy redistribution of supplies, which will help since so many offices don’t have much funding for supplies or equipment.”

To learn more about the site or to get a direct link, contact your unit’s Government Purchase Card holder, equipment custodian or facility manager, or call (937) 904-0025 (DSN 674-0025).
