Ordering Supplies

The University has standing order contracts with various suppliers in and outside the Ottawa area, most give the University an educational discount. A list of these standing orders is available from the Administrator. Check with your supervisor or the Departmental Administrator for clarification

Orders for Drugs, Chemicals

Faculty, staff and students who place orders for drugs and chemicals are asked to ensure that the supplier clearly indicates on the outside of the package what the order is for. Most deliveries come through the Receiving Office, Room 217. Items delivered through the mail system will be picked up by the Administrator and held in her office or delivered to a faculty member’s office.

A faculty member must sign all orders for drugs and chemicals. All narcotics and prescription veterinary drug orders need the signature of the Consulting Veterinarian. It is the responsibility of faculty supervisors to discuss the safe handling of such items with their laboratory technicians and students. Further information on the responsibility of supervisors is displayed on the “Health and Safety” bulletin board.

Garbage

Occupants are responsible for the removal of garbage from pails in laboratories and offices. Green garbage bags are available from the animal care staff. Garbage should be bagged and placed in the dumpster on the loading dock at the west end of the building. These doors are locked between 4:30pm and 8:30am.

Lockers

Lockers are located on the second level of the Centre adjacent to the respective washrooms. Please see the Administrator for locker availability and assignment.

Telephones

Students wishing to place long distance calls, i.e.for information from equipment suppliers, to place orders etc. in connection with their research are requested to use their faculty advisor’s telephone. Personal long distance calls are to be made using a long distance calling card obtained from Bell Canada.

Photocopier
