  • Hand-deliver your item.
  • If the item is 10”x14” or smaller, it can be sent by interoffice mail.

Additional Steps:

If your item is a repair or warranty repair with a charge, create a new Purchase Order by creating a Requisition. Put the serial number (or DOE#, if applicable) of the item being repaired in the Requisition description field. The repaired item should be received against this Purchase Order.

If your item is a trade-in, you may enter the new item by creating a new Purchase Order by creating a Requisition. You may also enter the new item as a line on an open Purchase Order. For the new item, take a discount equal to the trade-in amount. Put the serial number (or DOE#, if applicable) of the item being repaired in the Requisition description field.
