Protocols for Procuring and Delivering Supplies During the Shelter in Place Directive Due to COVID-19

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the “Shelter in Place” directive, we are providing guidance on a variety of Procurement and Shipping & Receiving Issues that need to be disseminated and adhered to by the CSUEB community. We are doing this with the safety and security of our staff and the broader CSUEB community in mind.

Shipping & Receiving

● Shipping & Receiving is open during the directive from 8AM-1PM Monday through Friday.

● For outgoing parcels and mail, please call 510-885-3703 and let the staff know that you are dropping off inter-office mail, mail to be metered and/or packages to be sent. Please remain in your vehicles, and have your trunk open. You will need to show a valid CSUEB ID to show proof of your affiliation.

● For package/mail pickup, please drive to Shipping & Receiving. When you arrive, please wait in your vehicle, call 510-885-3703 and request the mail and or packages that you will be picking up. You will need to show a valid CSUEB ID in order to make a pick-up.

● We will only release Department mail/parcel to the person or persons designated by the Department’s Managers. This will include all certified mail addressed to the Departments.

● Shipping & Receiving shall maintain a log for all parcel(s) pick-ups.

● There is no campus delivery of mail and/or parcels.

● There is no home delivery of campus equipment, mail and/or parcels.

● Minimize mail/shipping activity to reduce the need for pickup/drop off to the extent possible.

Office Supplies

● To the extent possible, we strongly encourage leveraging electronic capabilities (i.e., email, Adobe Sign, Excel, etc.), minimizing the need for printing documents and the toner/ink and paper needed to do so.

●  Printer paper can be accessed through Shipping & Receiving, one ream at a time.

●  Toner / ink purchases will have to be approved on a case by case basis, regardless of previous blanket approvals.

●  D o not make purchases with a personal credit card for work related supplies and expect reimbursement. You may use your P-Card for needed supplies, other than toner / ink and all other items that are not restricted by the P-Card Policy effective March, 2019.

Computer Equipment

●  All needed computer equipment requests necessary to address the “Shelter in Place” directive need to be coordinated through ITS, which includes monitors.
