Document Description

The Storeroom or Departmental Requisition (P-108) is a six-part, prenumbered, snap-out form that is used by all departments and agencies of the University to request materials and services from University storerooms and service agencies. This form is not used for non-stock or equipment items from the Student Stores; services from the Physical Plant; or equipment transfers between University departments or agencies. In the statements in this Manual describing the services offered by the various agencies, detailed descriptions are given on how to use this form. Storeroom requisitions are distributed to all University schools, departments, and agencies. Additional sets of Storeroom Requisitions can be picked up at the Materials Management and Distribution Divsion.

Using the Storeroom Requisition

General Notes

If more items are requested than there are spaces to list on the Storeroom Requisition, submit a second Storeroom Requisition. Each Storeroom Requisition must be complete within itself. Do not try to make a "page two" out of a second Storeroom Requisition.

Retain the fifth (white) copy for departmental files. Submit the remaining copies, with carbon intact, to the University storeroom or service agency.

The sixth (goldenrod) copy will be used as a packing list and will be returned with the supplies.
