As Cornell begins to resume some research operations, Procurement and Payment Services is working with the Incident Management Team (IMT) and Facilities and Campus Services (FCS) to source and maintain a centralized inventory of the following critical supplies:
- Face coverings
- Hand sanitizer
- Nitrile gloves
- Disinfecting solutions
To effectively manage the university’s costs and suppliers’ inventories, please avoid buying these roducts directly from other sources. Please see the instructions below.
Our procurement agents are monitoring supplier inventories with core suppliers (VWR, Grainger, W.B. Mason, Johnston) and evaluating solicitations from suppliers that are transitioning to producing COVID-19 related supplies.
Ordering from the Central Inventory
FCS is ordering, warehousing, and delivering the items listed above. Orders will be fulfilled from the R5 Operations warehouse.
TO ORDER: Visit e-SHOP and select the link labeled Central inventory order form for critical supplies in the e-SHOP messages section of the home page.
Placing Other e-SHOP Orders
For all other supply orders, if you have difficulty obtaining supplies or receive backorder or cancellation notices from an e-SHOP supplier, please immediately email Procurement and Payment Services or call the Procurement helpline at (607) 254-5300.
