Stores Items May Be Deleted

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 2002.

• 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 at: http://www-group.slac.stanford.edu/pur/inactivestoresitems.xls. If you prefer, a hard copy of the listing is also available at the Stores Department counter.

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 smurf@slac.stanford.edu no later than 1:00 p.m., Friday, February 27.

Contact Tom Murphy, Purchasing Department, Ext. 3582 or smurf@slac.stanford.edu.
