Supplies for Returning to Campus – Related to COVID-19

Over the past few months, many safety and cleaning products have been delayed or are unavailable through regular Vendors. Procurement is working hard to secure the supply of essential products using a centralized approach to ensure security of supply and control of price. 

We have a Created a new Catalog in Marketplace called COVID-19 Safety & Cleaning Supplies

 

What is different about this new Catalog? 

  • It has products from multiple vendors dependent of best price and availability, product selection/brand may change as supply availability does. 
  • Products will be managed centrally and distributed through Central Services with collaboration and product education from FM Custodial.
  • When ordering the products, a PO will be generated that emails to Central Services, Billing will be at will at time of delivery based on prices listed in the catalog.

NOTE: THESE PRODUCTS ARE FOR CAMPUS ONLY. You are NOT allowed to ship these products to your home.

We are working hard to ensure the best prices are obtained for everyone on campus, to ensure the safety and security of everyone.

Please see the information below for a step-by-step on how to order using the COVID-19 Safety & Cleaning Supplies Catalog.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any additional questions or product needs that you do not currently see in Marketplace and we will work to source these for you.
