I’m placing orders that support virtual learning and/or remote work and I need to have the items delivered to a remote location. How do I facilitate that as a Kent State buyer?

For orders being placed by Purchase Order, please contact PurchasingSupport@upenn.edu with the ship-to location details and business office justification for the addition. Purchasing Services will add the location as an approved ship-to location, which will be accessible for orders with all suppliers. If a ship-to location must be changed on an existing PO, that PO will need to be canceled and recreated using the alternate ship-to address. Prior to canceling, please contact the supplier to ensure the order has not shipped. Upon return to normal, on-campus operations, the remote ship-to locations will be disabled.

If ordering smaller, miscellaneous purchases by P-Card, the ship-to address may simply be provided at the time of order.

In all cases, University purchases establish Kent State's ownership of the goods purchased. Those goods must be consumed for University purposes and/or returned to the University for further use.
