The Warehouse Supervisor oversees Warehouse Technicians and the Shipping and Receiving Technician. The primary function of the Warehouse is to stock the many and varied maintenance and repair parts needed to keep the campus operating at all times. The Warehouse stocks over 4,000 items and a minimal amount of office supplies to meet Facilities Management's administrative needs.
Warehouse duties include
- Perform a daily perpetual inventory count of 35 to 40 stock items to ensure inventory is as accurate as possible
- Perform system maintenance, including double-checking items with a zero or negative-quantity on hand
- Deliver bottled gas cylinders on campus (see Bottled Gas section below)
- Table and chair delivery (university-sponsored functions only)
- Follow up on stock outage information provided by various Facilities Management trades groups
- Count all items on the reorder list to ensure reorder accuracy
- Receive shipments from vendors and other common carriers
- Receive shipments from common carriers to other institute departments when central receiving personnel are not available

The Facilities Management Warehouse department also operates the institute's bottled gas service. Bottled gases can be ordered by calling 575-835-5844, or by filling out the Bottled Gas Request Form. Frances Smith is the point of contact for bottled gas deliveries. Cheri Lerew is the point of contact for bottle gas orders and accounting. They can also be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
When ordering gases, please provide the following information:
- Name of department
- Account number
- Building and room number
- Name of requester
- Gas type requested
Most gas requests can be filled from stock within the Facilities Management's cylinder cage. If the gas is not available in the cage, it can be ordered for a Wednesday delivery from the gas vendor. All liquids are also handled through the weekly order system.
Deadline for Wednesday delivery is 12:00pm (noon) on Monday. All liquids are also handled through the weekly order system.
Note: Bottled gases are strictly a campus service.
