Certain hardware items may be available for departments to buy, and the Plant Services Receiving Dock is available to receive campus shipments that are too large to be shipped directly to their intended department. 


To purchase an item through the Plant Services Purchasing department:

  1. Check if the item is in stock by calling Plant Services and asking for the Purchasing Department. 
  2. Print and fill out a requisition form. 
  3. Scan to email and email the signed form to plantservice@southern.edu "Attention Purchasing Department."

If the shipment is something you ordered, and the order requires Plant Services to install the item, you must generate a Repair Request and put that number on the Requisition.

  2. The quantity and type of items expected

When we receive your order you will be notified by email or phone call. Pick-up or delivery can be arranged at that time.
