What Happens to Material Once It Is Received?


What Happens to Material Once It Is Received?

a) Receiving accepts all purchase order shipments except C.O.D. deliveries. Policies mandate that C.O.D.'s are unacceptable.

b) All packages are opened, goods are inspected for damage, and items are entered into the Receiving module of the SUNY on-line system for reconciliation with the information on the purchase order.

c) Equipment valued at $1500 or more is bar coded and entered into the Property Control System (PCS).

d) Normally, all supplies and equipment are delivered to the destination indicated on the purchase order in about 5 days.

e) Personal packages are the sole responsibility of the individual. Neither security nor delivery can be provided with State supported resources.
