Give Feedback to Purchasing, Printing Services, Shipping and Receiving
The main purpose of Purchasing, Printing Services, and Shipping and Receiving is to provide the campus with timely and cost-effective services in a professional and courteous manner. These units would like to know what they're doing well and where they could use some improvement. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey.

As you may not have used services from all three areas, the survey is divided into sections for each unit. You don't have to answer all the questions. The survey will be available until Friday, April 29.
