Catalogues for essential cleaning products, personal care items, standard signage, and physical barriers are now available in eShop. All members of the Carleton community can now place orders for critical items through eShop as recommended in your departmental COVID-19 assessment. These items will be free-of-charge. Please be responsible in your approach to acquiring items. If you need assistance, Procurement Services is available to discuss your requirements by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also note that the available items may be different than the normal supplies acquired in your department, and may be subject to limits on amounts and may change over time.
How to order
Placing your order for return to work supplies through eShop is the same as shopping any of the existing hosted catalogues. Once you sign in, you will see a Safe Return to Work showcase featuring supplies that are available to order – see the showcase icon below for reference.
A disinfectant spray bottle program has been created to ensure departments have easy access to disinfectant spray for cleaning and sanitizing work areas. These re-fillable spray bottles will come pre-filled with disinfectant. When your department needs to have the bottle refilled, simply place another order through eShop, and a filled bottle will be exchanged for the empty one you have on hand. By taking advantage of the disinfectant spray bottle program, you are helping to protect our environment by reducing waste and reusing supplies.
When placing orders in eShop, please indicate your preferred date of delivery in the Delivery Options of the Shipping information section of your order. Orders will be delivered as close as possible to your requested delivery date, with weekly deliveries taking place every Tuesday and Thursday – beginning July 7th. You do not need to be present in your office to receive the delivery.
To order research-specific supplies, please place your order through the Science Stores catalogue, which is also found in the Return to Work showcase. Supplies ordered through the Science Stores will be charged on a recovery basis. If the supplies you need to conduct your research are not available, please contact the Science Stores at email@example.com to discuss your requirements.
