Office of Procurement Services
The University of Mississippi


The Receiving Department in Procurement Services is generally the delivery point for shipments of equipment and supplies coming into the university. Under normal circumstances, shipments received in Procurement Services will be delivered by Receiving personnel to university departments the same day or no later than the next business day. The delivery of large shipments (size or quantity) will be arranged through the Physical Plant. Receiving personnel are not authorized to unpack boxes, set up merchandise, or make a delivery to multiple points within a department.
