Material and Moving Services

Moving & Trucking and Receiving

The Material Service Unit is a support service to the maintenance, construction and utilities work groups within Facilities & Operations.

The Material Service Unit’s inventory consists of maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) materials commonly used on a daily basis. Customers shop freely; completing and turning in requisitions at the counter upon exiting the area. These requisitions are processed daily and the charges are service unit billed by the contracted supplier monthly. The inventory is consigned via a negotiated procurement agreement. Over 1700 items are stocked and available for pick up. Staff can source special ordered or non-stock materials for pick up. Special ordered or non-stock materials can be delivered to the job site as these materials will ship from the selected supplier’s distribution center.
