Goods Receipts

Before a package is delivered to a department, Receiving personnel will normally generate a paper goods receipt based on the packing list.  Someone representing the department must sign this goods receipt upon delivery. If the merchandise received is unacceptable for any reason (damaged, incomplete, incorrect, etc.), Receiving must be contacted by e-mail within 48 hours of receipt. After 48 hours the goods receipt will be changed to a payable status.
