Delivery of University Purchased Property to an Employee’s Home Address

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, building closures, and resulting telecommuting for many University employees, a temporary exception has been made to the policy restriction for delivery of University orders to a non-University address. Orders delivered to an employee’s home or other personal address are not to exceed $500. This temporary exception will be rescinded when University administration determines a return to regular business operations.  Property is to be returned to the department once regular business operations resume. Ordering processes including approval controls are briefly mentioned below:
