The shipping section
of Shipping and Receiving serves two
To provide a central location
to ship goods or materials for legitimate university purposes.
To authorize return to vendors
of goods or materials originally ordered on a university purchase order.
Return of goods or materials
originally ordered with a university purchase order requires approval by
Department and a vendor's return authorization number.
If goods or materials were obtained
with a departmental purchase order (DPO) or a procurement card (procard), they can be returned
directly to the vendor without approval of the Purchasing Department. A Shipping Requisition should be used to return items to a vendor. Include
the vendor's return authorization number (if required by vendor), the address, and insurance information. The department's billing FOAPAL is required.
Items are usually shipped via ground service. This is an economical
means of shipment. All shipments are trackable and the first $100 of insurance is provided at
no additional cost. Items may also be shipped next day or second day air
for additional fees.
- General shipments
for legitimate university purposes are handled through Shipping and Receiving. A completed Shipping Requisition must
be sent to the Shipping Department along with the box to be shipped. Indicate on the Shipping Requisition any
pertinent information such as the recipient's address, return authorization
or insurance information. The department's billing FOAPAL is required.
Shipping of personal items through
shipping and receiving is prohibited.
