Ordering and Home Delivery Note

When placing an order in Marketplace please select Central Services address, when placing your marketplace order.  See Screen shot for details: 

Please ensure you insert your name in the Ship to Attn Box.

Once your package is received, Central Services will reach out via email and phone to schedule an appointment window for you to pick up your item from the Commissary Building.
 
Please note the following:

  • Entry into the commissary building is prohibited at this time
  • Please come at the time you have been given.
  • Please adhere to social distancing of a minimum 6ft
  • Your items will be a placed on a cart outside the main commissary building upon your arrival. You will be asked to retrieve your time form the cart.

 
To assist with resources at this time if your ordered item is not critical please advise Central Services and they will securely store it for you until normal operations resume, and employees are back on campus. 

If you have an immediate need for an item to facilitate your work at home, please use a P Card /Department P Card and purchase with delivery to your home address. Please note Amazon Business is a good vehicle for this type of spend. If you require access to Amazon Business, please email Karen.McKinnon@wwu.edu.

PLEASE NOTE: This change in process is a temporary measure as we react with COVID-19. All purchases that have home delivery address must be first sent to Purchasing.Department@wwu.edu Purchasing.Department@wwu.edu prior to being placed so appropriate tracking can take place.

Thank you, 

Your WWU Procurement Team

 

Resource Sharing Requests

Many requests for assistance in serving and supporting our local communities and the state in this crisis are flowing into offices and departments. The ICS Team here at Western has developed some preliminary procedures for resource sharing with external entities, which I am happy to share with you.

The goal is to create an efficient and streamlined process for responding to requests through the Incident Command structure.

The basic premises which will guide our resource sharing are:

  • Western Washington University will collaborate with local agencies and organizations where possible to support critical services and functions in the community.
  • WWU must abide by all applicable laws, code, and policy when collaborating with local agencies and organizations.
  • WWU must prioritize critical needs within our own organization to ensure life safety and continuity of operations.
  • Requests for resource sharing, including transfer of WWU-owned material, temporary assignment of WWU employees, or temporary use of WWU equipment or facilities will be considered through the Whatcom Unified Command. Unified Command will have the highest priority.
Western employees receiving inquiries or requests from outside entities should direct those requests to COVID19Planning@wwu.edu.

WWU departments which have materials that could be considered for transfer to Whatcom Unified Command should email the type, quantity, and manufacturer of the materials to Purchasing.Department@wwu.edu.

Ordering Goods related to COVID-19

As the campus continues to prepare itself for any possible impacts from the Covid-19 virus, departments who may be making purchases directly related to this event (i.e. bacterial gel, hand soap, etc.) should contact Business Services/Procurement prior to completing any transactions.

Procurement will work with Facilities Management to check current stock managed by Facilities for cleaning supplies.

PLEASE NOTE: We are experiencing significant delays and back orders for sanitizers and disinfectant wipes.

When requesting items please include in your email, your Department, what you want to order and what quantity. Please send this request to purchasing.department@wwu.edu

Process Flow of Depts Ordering COVID-19 Items

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:

For Standard Furniture Needs

(Seating, tables, sit-stand desks, file cabinets, side chairs, etc. using department budgets)

Log into the Western Marketplace and shop the furniture suppliers with whom we have preferential pricing, excellent warranty (10 yrs on most items), and delivery direct to your office location!

There are a range of options and price points to meet any budget needs. Delivery time for most items is 2-3 weeks. Placing your order directly through the Viking Market is a quick and efficient method of getting your order processed.

Major Renovation or Remodel?

Furniture and office equipment for a major renovation or remodeling project must be coordinated with Facilities Management and are generally funded under capital budget allocations. A Project Manager will have been assigned to these and you should coordinate with them on your furniture needs.

If you receive furniture that is not what you ordered or is damaged, please contact the Procurement Department as soon as possible with as much detail about the issue as possible (photos, incorrect model numbers, etc.) so that we can contact the supplier and arrange for the problem to be fixed.
