STANDARDIZATION

Items of common use shall be standardized as much as possible in order to (1) gain the value of maximum quantity discounts, (2) to lessen the variety of items carried in stock by and for various departments, (3) to eliminate numerous small orders at retail prices, and (4) to lessen the expense involved with high processing costs.


GENERAL STORES OPERATION

In all cases on the Athens campus where material is available through General Stores, departments are to avail themselves of this service and requisition items on the short form requisition. Goods may be secured from General Stores (West State Street) by use of a "stores requisition" Form P-36) or by calling in person with the requisition to pick up the materials desired. This form, properly approved, should be sent or carried directly to General Stores. Branch campuses of the University need not follow this procedure.
