Office of Procurement and Payment policy dictates that all goods purchased through the university purchase order system, which are not available to ship via UPS or USPS, must be specified for inside delivery. This means that the vendor must arrange for their goods to be delivered directly to individual departments, as there is no centralized receiving at the university. Contact your respective campus Facility Operations office to determine the particular building loading dock hours to relay to your vendor. Additionally, all furnishings must be shipped assembled or assembled by a university preferred vendor on-site, and be specified for inside delivery.
If the vendor is unable to provide inside delivery services, please contact the Facility Operations office prior to placing your order to discuss what other moving options may be available on a case-by-case basis.
Tractor-trailer deliveries are not accommodated in most cases, as there are no loading docks capable of accommodating a semi-truck on either campus.
Facility Operations has no short or intermediate term storage for deliveries that come ahead of schedule. If departments are not ready to receive the delivered goods, the delivery will be rejected.
Failure to specify inside delivery or provide advance notification to Facility Operations may result in the delivery being refused.
