Items Under Consideration for Deletion from Stores
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.
General and Metal Store Items
Any General and Metal Stores items that have not been issued since May
31, 2003 are slated for deletion.
Complete List of Other Items Scheduled for Deletion
A comprehensive list of many other 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 service counter.
Is There an Item on the Deletion List You Would 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, July 29.
