Bottled Water for Coolers and Delivery Services Reminder

November 12, 2018

As a follow up to the July 20 memo on the purchase of bottled water for coolers and delivery services (such as Diamond Springs, Crystal Springs and Le Bleu, for example), we need to remind departments that purchasing bottled water from State funds is not normally allowable. When electing to order this service, other funding sources such as trust funds should be used, consistent with the fund authority.

Upcoming Staples Delivery Changes

October 3, 2018

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.

Staples Delivery Update

September 17, 2018

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.
