[DRAFT} Office Supplies - Central Receiving & Stockroom
 
Non-Academic
 
Administration and Finance
Central Receiving and Stockroom
 
All Office supply purchases are centralized through Administrative Services/Central Receiving & Stockroom. Two forms are available to request delivery of University supplied office supplies. One form has a standard list of items [Requisition Form For Storeroom Supplies] and the second is a special request form [Justification of Purchase Form]. Keep in mind that, in many cases, the University standardizes items in order to save money and ensure efficiencies of scale.
This policy provides information to all employees of the University about the requesting process for standard and special office supplies. Special requests will be reviewed to ensure that standards are consistently applied across the University. The standardization of items is done to save money and ensure efficiencies of scale. Some specialty items may be denied e.g. if they fall outside the standards set, space limitations etc. Multiple departments may need to be included in determining approval for special requests e.g. item requires hanging or electricity, venting etc. [Note: special pens, coffee, creamers utensils kitchen products or food of any kind is considered a personal purchase and University funds should not be used.]
