As Carleton continues to plan for a safe and gradual return to campus for some areas in August, 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. Departments will be able to order the necessary supplies directly from appropriate vendors or from Procurement Services, as outlined in this 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.


For departments and individuals currently permitted on campus, supplies can be ordered through eShop in consultation with your manager or supervisor. Catalogues for essential cleaning products, personal care items, standard signage, and physical barriers are available. These items are free-of-charge. Please be responsible in your approach to acquiring items and ensure your unit/department is coordinated in its requests.

Please also note that the available items may be different than the normal supplies acquired in your unit/department, may be subject to limits on amounts and may change over time.

In the event that a critical order is delayed, please contact Procurement Services as soon as possible. or 613-520-3622
