|Storage of Materials|
When needed, departments may temporarily store goods and equipment in the Central Receiving Warehouse located on the South Campus, provided space is available and retention criteria stated in this guideline is met. Upon approval, the Purchasing Department will assign storage space to a department; however, the goods and equipment stored in the space are the responsibility of the department to which the storage space is assigned.
When departments desire storage space at an offsite commercial storage facility, the department should contact the Purchasing Department to coordinate acquisition of the rental space, in accordance with purchasing procedures. Note: Normally, only those items for which a foreseeable need exists will be stored. Items excess to departmental needs must be declared surplus property for possible use by other University departments or disposed of through procedures established in the Surplus Property section of this BFGuide.
