September closing and October month-end close dates announced; mini storeroom closing and Staples deliveries on campus.
The Mini Storeroom will close permanently on Monday, Oct. 8, 2018. There will be no departmental deliveries after this date.
Effective Oct. 8, 2018, Staples deliveries will come directly from Staples to the address specified on the order. All orders placed with Staples via ePro will be delivered by Staples personnel, and Central Receiving will no longer be involved with the delivery of Staples orders. Staples has been preparing for this change for several months, so we expect the change to be seamless for campus customers.
By Nov. 29, a new security process called 2-Step Verification will be required to access Office 365, which includes email, calendar and OneDrive, among many other applications.
September month-end close deadline; employee direct deposit form submission; opting out of W-2; ConnectCarolina User Conference; Request for Interdepartmental Fees and charges
Employees can now opt-out of receiving paper W-2 forms beginning with the current 2018 calendar year. Opting out of receiving a paper W-2 (also known as consenting to receive a W-2 form electronically), provides the most secure method of W-2 distribution, makes use of the Connect Carolina system, saves paper and saves costs.

Please review carefully the attached documents, ‘TIM Adverse Weather Information, September 2018’ and ‘Adverse Weather Alert Carolina Memo 9-10-18’ for important information about Adverse Weather.
Due to the impacts of Hurricane Florence on Staples distribution network, there will likely be three-day hub delays for all orders processed over the next several days. That means orders placed on today, Sept. 17 might not be received until Thursday/Friday, Sept. 20-21. Lumberton, Fayetteville and Wilmington Staples hubs are the hardest hit but the Staples team is working to divert product and minimize impact. That said, in many areas, road conditions and standing water are preventing timely deliveries.
