Purchasing of PPE, Hand Sanitizer, etc.

Direction on purchasing of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and sanitary/cleaning products continues to evolve week by week. We appreciate your staying flexible and understanding that direction may change. 

  • Purchases are acceptable for offices/facilities that are open or have been given clearance to open soon. 
  • The usually preferred process of obtaining supplies through eStores continues to be an option, though availability of items is hit-and-miss. 
  • For now, obtaining PPE and cleaning products from a vendor via a PCard is acceptable. 

Please exercise caution about ordering online from unknown vendors, as we have seen several instances of fulfillment problems and inferior products.
