June’s IN Focus Column features Steve Gale of Purchasing Services.
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.

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.
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.
Beginning July 23, we request that departments pay for their water bottle orders via P-Card and reconcile electronically.
