COVID-19/Teleworking - How do I order now?

Should you need to order items that will be used during the teleworking period, they will be reviewed on a case by case basis for delivery to your home. 

  • In an effort to streamline the review, please provide the following information as a part of the eRequest: 
    • Is the requested item necessary to complete the work being done as listed on the telework agreement? 
    • Clearly indicate the business purpose and reason for home delivery. 
    • Who will it be shipped to (student, staff or faculty)? 
    • Will the items be required to return to campus? 

As always, feel free to reach out to the BOC for any questions or concerns.  We are here to support the “Continuity in Instruction” for the College of Engineering.
