Guide to Personal Protective Equipment Supply Ordering
Procurement and Payment Services is coordinating several campus wide PPE initiatives. Every undergraduate student will receive a PPE kit as they exit the testing centers. PPE kits for graduate students will be ordered from Procurement by their school and the school will be responsible for distributing the kits to their students. Read the PPE guide to learn about the entire campus PPE strategy.
Amazon Business added to iBuyNU
The Amazon Business Prime Catalog has been added to iBuyNU. The purpose of implementing Amazon Business in iBuyNU is to complement all of the Preferred Vendor catalogs already in iBuyNU. It will allow you to purchase items not available through our other Preferred Vendors.
Fiscal Year End Preparation
As we conclude Fiscal Year 2020, we encourage you to visit the Northwestern Fiscal Year End website for important information. We have also included some key PPE dates to our website.
Net30 Payment Terms
Standard payment terms have returned to Net 30. Even though our standard payment terms in the past were net 30, NUFinancials was configured to essentially pay net now. The standard for vendors will now be a true net 30 and we will make few exceptions to this.
Procurement and Payment Services would like to share a few operational changes for the fall. These changes are related to Mail Delivery, Accounts Payable, and related services.
Northwestern has developed a Contractor Safety Program to provide our contractors with a clear understanding of Northwestern’s expectations that all work performed on University property is safe. In addition, the University has developed a COVID-19 Return to Campus Policy with the intention to mitigate the risks of spread of COVID-19.
