Update on Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Effective May 29th, in the spirit of continuous improvement, we have modified the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) ordering process. University Purchasing will place all PPE orders on behalf of the requestor of the PPE Request Form. This will help to ensure compliance with University purchasing policies and procedures, allow our team to be more accountable and ease the future PPE spend reporting burden. Recognizing this is a change for departments that order their own PPE in the normal course of business, please be patient as we navigate the Limited Business Operations / Modified Business Operations environment in this very challenging Supply Chain environment. The following, while not a comprehensive list, and subject to update are the PPE items subject to this updated process:

  • Gloves
  • Masks and Mask Filters
  • Face Shields
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Sanitizing Wipes
  • Clinic/Hospital Gowns
  • Spray Bottles
  • Disinfectant Spray
  • Head/Shoe Coverings
  • Plexiglass Safety Shield

Update on Check Deposits

UPDATE: The Financial Affairs Operations Center is expanding drop off times to five days per week. While we are expanding times, to the extent possible please coordinate your deposit drop off with other departments in your school or division. Consolidating multiple departments into one time slot will help ensure we timely receive and process all items across campus during modified operations. Please note deposit drop off will be by appointment only. Sign up for your dropoff time here. Please use the main entrance at the Administration Building. As always, if you experience an issue accessing the building to make your deposit please call 205-934-4151 and an associate will assist you.

Below are a few points of information regarding this process.

  • Please contact the campus post office to request delivery of your department mail
  • Deposits should be dropped off at AB 160 at your designated time
  • There will be a designated area in the lobby of AB 160 to leave your deposits and sign in sheet to validate your drop off. Please complete the sign in sheet and we will confirm deposit receipt via email.
