Purchasing Policies and Guidelines

There are many ways to buy goods and services through the UCSD Campus. Below outlines several ways faculty and staff may acquire goods and/or services without paying out of pocket.

Office Supplies

General Office Supplies

The Visual Arts department keeps a store of basic office supplies in Mandeville Room 216. These supplies are meant to support the basic instructional and office needs of Sociology faculty and staff and can be accessed during regular business hours (weekdays 8:30 am - 4:00 pm). Typical supplies kept include the following:

  • Writing instruments - pens, pencils, markers, etc.
  • White board marking pens, erasers and cleaner
  • Writing pads, note pads and post-its
  • Manila file folders, hanging filer folders, etc.
  • Paper clips, binder clips and staples
  • Transparencies and labels
  • Scotch tape, liquid paper, erasers and other miscellaneous items

Items not usually kept in inventory can be ordered from the UCSD Marketplace - typical delivery time for most items is one to two days. An order can be placed with Fiscal Support Yolie Torres. Depending upon the item requested, you may be asked for an index/fund source to charge for the supply.
