Physics groups planning significant purchases of specialized equipment should review
the Receiving and Mail Services Department website prior to placing orders. Of particular
interest are the policies and procedures of this department which include special
requirements for grant-funded purchases and guidance related to direct shipments
to departments. The links below give details for each of these topics.
As mentioned in the University direct shipments policy, it is recommended that specialized
equipment be received at the Receiving Department and not here at the PRB. If this
cannot be done, the Physics group initiating the purchase becomes fully responsible
for the delivery and should consider the off-loading limitations and additional responsibilities
that direct shipment requires. Additional details regarding direct shipments of
items to the PRB are contained in the document below.
