After looking at the overall usage rates of certain Stores items, SLAC
Stores plans to eliminate a number of items from its inventory. Many
commercial vendors are now able to deliver commodities very quickly
("just-in-time" delivery) and, in many cases, this is a much more
efficient and economical way to get what SLAC needs to do the job.
Items Scheduled for Deletion
• General and Metal Store Items that have not been issued since April
• Spares items that have been idle in Stores for more than three years.
A complete list of items scheduled for deletion can be found on-line
http://www-group.slac.stanford.edu/pur/inactivestoresitems.xls. If you
prefer, a hard copy of the listing is also available at the Stores
Is There an Item on the Deletion List You’d Like Retained?
SLAC Stores will need a justification to continue stocking any of the
planned deletion items. If you still need Stores to maintain these items
in stock, please e-mail your justification to: Tom Murphy at
later than 1:00 p.m., Friday, February 27.
