How to order

To order products from Central Stores, departments must first complete a stock requisition form (EO.47b). This form is available in Central Stores where staff are able to give advice on completing it. Completion of the document needs to include the appropriate charge code and signed by an authorised signatory.

The requisition and issue note (white, blue and yellow copies) should be sent by internal post or taken by hand to the Central Stores. The pink copy should be retained by the originator. Faxed copies of the requisition will not be accepted.

All products held in Central Stores are also available for private purchase and can be purchased by members of staff (cash only).

Delivery options

Once the requisition has been completed products can either be collected from Central Stores or delivered directly to departments. A daily delivery is made from Colchester to Loughton and Southend Campuses.
