As Carleton continues to plan for a safe and gradual return to campus, starting in August for some areas, it is important to ensure that prioritized departments have the appropriate supplies and that their spaces are well prepared.
To facilitate the implementation of the safe and gradual return to campus, departments can place orders for critical items through eShop in consultation with their manager or supervisor.
Departments will be able to order the necessary supplies directly from appropriate vendors or from Procurement Services, as outlined in the Return To Campus Purchasing Guide. The University will continue to maintain an emergency stock of essential supplies for health and safety and, should supply chain disruptions reoccur, provide centralized support through eShop.
All university-established protocols and procurement policies continue to apply.
The initial sourcing and supply of personal care kits will be provided by Procurement Services.
The Sourcing of departmental cleaning supplies (i.e., those supplies normally acquired by units to supplement contract cleaning activities) will be procured through eShop through our approved supplier catalogues.
Personal protective equipment (PPE) sourcing required for research purposes, beyond the basic supplies provided through Procurement Services, will be handled by the Science Stores to accommodate the individualized and ongoing needs of research.
Sourcing for Health and Counselling Services and Housing and Residence Life will be handled separately by those units. Procurement Services will assist as needed.
Other units requiring assistance may contact Procurement Services directly.
The following catalogues are available in eShop to facilitate the ordering of essentials supplies.
The university will shift back to decentralized purchasing, assuming supply channels are stable. This means that departments will order the necessary supplies directly from appropriate vendors or Procurement Services, as outlined in the Return To Campus Purchasing Guide.
All university-established protocols and procurement policies apply. The receiving of couriers and mail will be decentralized back to departments, when appropriate. Orders for supplies from internal departments must be delivered to an on-campus location.
