As a standard operating procedure, the Purchasing department specifies that new furniture be ordered "assembled and in place" (the vendor is paid to install it on site). If a department otherwise requests new furniture assembly, a work order can be placed with Customer Service, ext. 6111 or online at http://workrequest.buffalostate.edu. The furniture will be assembled on overtime as an expense to the department.
Surplus furniture will be put together upon delivery.
