Revolving Stock

The CGS Revolving Stock stores are a function of CGS Asset Management Division’s Warehouse Services in Iqaluit.

Stocked items generally consist of government accountable forms (financial and non-financial), warrant books, envelopes, paper, computing equipment and specialty promotional items that all GN Departments, boards, agencies and schools require in their day to day operations.

Surplus of Non-Fixed Assets

All GN Departments, Agencies, Schools and Nunavut Arctic College regularly acquire and manage materiel (non-fixed tangible assets) to support their operational requirements to deliver programs. Tangible capital assets encompass a broad range of items from furniture to computers to vehicles and equipment. At the end of their life cycles, all non-fixed assets must be declared surplus and disposed in accordance with the Financial Administration Act (FAA), Financial Administration Manual (FAM) and the GN Surplus Policy.

As per FAM 704-3 Section 3.4 “All property that has been declared surplus must be transferred to the Department of Community and Government Services (CGS) for disposal. CGS, in consultation with the Department who declared the property surplus, may decide, for reasons of economy, that alternate disposal procedures are more appropriate“.

The GN Surplus Policy and FAM 704-3 Directive does not apply to the crown corporations Nunavut Power Corporation & Nunavut Housing Corporation.
