Receiving is responsible for accepting and delivering all departmental merchandise ordered from outside vendors. These orders should be properly identified with a department name, contact person, and if you used a purchase order, it should have the order number and/or the name of the individual who placed the order.

Departments should not assume one-day delivery out of our department. However, every accommodation will be giving to get packages to respective departments as soon as they arrive.
