PPE Supplies for Fall

August 18, 2022

Procurement and Payment Services (PPS) has been centrally managing the purchase, payment, and distribution of PPE supplies on campus during Covid.  This includes disposable masks, hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, KN95 masks, clear face masks, and face shields that departments and schools would request as needed using the order form on the PPE website.  PPS has also been buying and providing Aramark and Housing with disposable masks, facial tissue, and hand sanitizer to keep the PPE lobby stands stocked.

Please note that PPS will be winding down the centralized ordering and distribution of PPE supplies by September 2.  Below is how PPE needs on campus will be met beginning the fall of 2022:

  • PPS will create a multi-vendor catalog in iBuyNU for PPE items that departments and schools have been ordering from Procurement (hand sanitizer, disposable masks, KN95 masks, disinfectant wipes, etc.).  Departments and schools can order and pay for these supplies directly from the vendors as needed through iBuyNU.
  • PPE lobby stands will be removed from most buildings by September 9.  Any stands that are not removed by September 9 will have supplies managed by a unit on campus. KN95 masks and surgical masks will be available from Jacobs, Norris, and 345 Superior.  5,000 Ecolab hand sanitizer dispensers have also been installed throughout all buildings on both campuses.

It is our expectation that PPE needs on campus can be satisfied beginning this fall through the above two channels.
