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 contains a standard list of items [Requisition Form For Storeroom Supplies] and the second is a special request form [Justification of Purchase Form].
This policy provides information to all employees of the University on how to use the request process for standard and special office supplies. Standard requests will be delivered to you as soon as the item is received. Special requests will be reviewed to ensure that standards are consistently applied across the University. If approved the item(s) will be ordered and delivered when available.
The standardization of items is done to save money and ensure efficiencies of scale. Some specialty items may be denied if they fall outside the set standards. Multiple departments may need to be included in the approval process for special requests e.g. items requiring wall mount, technology, electricity, venting etc. [Note: special pens, coffee, creamers utensils kitchen products or food of any kind are considered a personal (non University funded) purchase.] If a request is denied, we will provide you with the reason and alternative resources. Furnishings, equipment, ink/toner, technology may require a separate approval and/or procurement process.
Forms and Contact Information for Administrative Services & associated departments can be found after logging into the "myWSU" Portal then visit [www.worcester.edu/AdminServices].
