University Procurement Services (UPS), in collaboration with Institutional Planning & Operations (IP&O) is pleased to announce the availability of a new internal IP&O RU Marketplace catalog entitled “IP&O Essential Supplies”. In this catalog you will find personal protective equipment and safety supplies such as nitrile gloves, Halyard N95 respirators, face shields, dust masks, three-ply surgical masks, hand sanitizer, isolation gowns, and wet disinfectant surface wipes (approved for clinical use). Please refer to the below screen capture for item details.
These items are available on campus and are in ample supply through the IP&O Essential Supplies catalog. Other RU Marketplace catalogs have been temporarily restricted for these specific items until the on-campus supply has been depleted. These supplies were purchased during the early phase of the pandemic to ensure Rutgers had a sufficient supply during the global supply chain disruptions. Now that the university is in a steady state for supply access, these materials are now available for purchase universitywide.
