The Office of Procurement has released a message to faculty and staff concerning requests for supplies and equipment. The message reads as follows:
Now that most are working remotely and we have closed or severely limited hours for many University departments, please try to refrain from ordering supplies or equipment that are not needed to support essential services or the COVID-19 efforts. Central Services has limited space and resources to hold onto undeliverable equipment and materials. We are continuing operations and effective immediately Mail Services and Central Receiving will limit its hours of operation. The schedule is as follows until further notice:
Central Receiving/Property Control
Open Monday – Friday 9:00am – 3:00pm
Central Receiving will only be delivering orders that are indicated as COVID-19 related. Overnight and perishable shipments will continue to be processed as a priority and will be delivered on the same day as received.
If a department remains open and is expecting a regular (non-COVID-19) package or if any closed department ordered an expedited shipment then please contact us to arrange delivery.
Central Receiving can be reached at 2-6290 or 2-6307 or email us at ([email protected]).
Open Monday/Wednesday/Friday 9:00am – 3:00pm
Open Tuesday/Thursday 8:30am – 12:00pm
Mail pickup and delivery services will continue for all hospital and satellite areas, including Southampton. There will be limited pick-up and delivery to University Administration, Academic and Service departments.
Any department that is expecting critical mail, for example, accountable mail, express or parcel service, will receive a call from Mail Services. If your department is open, or we have a schedule in place, Mail Services will deliver to you.
If a department wishes to discuss Mail Services then please call 2-6231 or email [email protected].
Thank you all for your understanding.
