Special Information for Ordering Goods and Services While Teleworking 

 

Delivery Locations

It is not recommended that deliveries be made to home addresses. Facilities Management and loading docks at Pinn Hall and MR5 receive packages for their respective areas. Other schools and departments should refer to their Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) for delivery of goods. If a home delivery is an absolute necessity, orders should be placed in the UVA Marketplace and the supplier should be called to redirect the delivery.

 

Office Supplies

Order office supplies for home delivery from a contract supplier

UVA’s strategic contract for office supplies is with the The Supply Room Companies, Inc. (TSRC). They have developed a way for faculty and staff to order office supplies, computer peripherals, etc., at UVA contract pricing, for home delivery via UPS. This method only applies for orders from TSRC.

Highlights:

  • Orders are placed through the UVA Marketplace, but allow faculty and staff to enter home address and T&E Card information for payment
  • Access to TSRC’s catalog with UVA contract pricing
  • Shipping is free
  • TSRC is a Virginia-based, woman-owned (SWaM) company

View the UVA Order Instructions from TSRC for more information.
