What is the process to secure COVID-19 supplies?

Process to secure COVID-19 specific supplies for your research group:

At this time, centrally stocked COVID-19-specific PPE and supplies can be picked up by a designated member of your research group at the Surplus Store in the Materials Management and Distribution Center (MMDC) following the process delineated below. Due to our initial limited supply, only research groups and support personnel that are currently on campus conducting critical research are eligible to collect centrally stocked COVID-19 PPE and supplies at this time. Other research groups will be able to secure PPE and supplies after receiving approval to return to campus operation.

  • Principle investigators with critical research should complete the online pickup request form that can be found here.  The supply quantity will be determined by the number of researchers and support personnel in your group and their level of on-campus activity.   
  • After completing the request form, call the Surplus Store at 765-496-2222 to arrange a time and date to pick up your supplies.  Hours are 9 am – 3 pm, Monday – Friday.
  • Print out the confirmation e-mail that you receive from purchasingrequest@purdue.edu and take it with you to the Surplus Store for pickup.
  • If you have any questions related to this process, please call 765-496-2222.
