In an effort to improve Central Stores processes and to provide better and more timely support to customers Materials Management will be implementing a new Central Stores ordering portal on April 3rd for those customers who place stock orders for office supplies, food, commodities (janitorial products) and general products (kitchen and dining supplies). A PowerPoint illustrating how to use the new ordering portal is located on the stock ordering webpage.
Customers will receive two emails during the ordering process, one when they place an order and one when the order is filled by Central Stores. Central Stores asks that customers retain these emails, as they or their business manager may need these records for reconciling billing information. Central Stores will bill bi-monthly and all transactions that have occurred within each billing period will be billed as one lump sum per cost center or account code. Central Stores will no longer send individual billings because the email sent to customers when orders are fulfilled will contain all necessary information for a particular order. Customers may call 815-753-0406 with billing questions.
For more information about the new stock ordering process, please contact Central Stores at CentralStoresOrders@niu.edu or by calling 815-753-6274.
