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.
The purchasing of furniture for Western has been greatly streamlined through the use of Western Marketplace and the assistance of an expert designer in Facilities available to you at no charge. Here are a few guidelines to help in the process:
