Mr. James Nelson
Plant Operations maintains a warehousing operation for storage of materials that are immediately needed for the repair and maintenance of campus facilities. The warehouse provides many services to plant operations workers including the inventory of needed parts and the apparatus for purchase of parts from local vendors.
Plant warehousing is responsible for the receipt of all materials and the control of purchases within plant operations. They are integrated with our work management system using networked computers and thus all parts are issued to work orders and charged appropriately to outstanding jobs. Warehousing maintains control of credit card purchases and local vendor purchases using a complex computer program and a system of authorization numbers for these purchases.
Departments can purchase materials that are on hand in the Plant Warehouse by submitting the appropriate request form. These materials will be charged back to respective departments at our cost without markup.
ately, we are striving to generate your annual report pieces related to planning directly from the database itself, further enhancing the efficiency of data collection and use. Look for email announcements and further explanation here on the planning website regarding these exciting changes!
