PPE Purchasing Guidelines

  • Determine your PPE needs as soon as possible, factoring in availability, timing of delivery, cost, etc.

  • Note that many products (e.g., N95 masks and gowns) continue to be in limited supply and may be subject to lead times of 4-8 weeks. It is critical to identify PPE needs and place orders as far in advance as possible.

  • Procurement Services recommends that you purchase PPE assuming a full return to campus in the fall. Orders should be placed by 6/5/20.

  • Any PPE purchased over and above typical needs in order to accommodate social distancing or other COVID-19 related considerations may be charged to the following cost centers:

    • Chart D 110001-5999

    • Chart S 111001-5999

    • Chart O 112001-5999

  • If you have any questions or experience shortages or urgent needs, please contact Procurement Services at
