Purchasing services provides numerous services to departments on campus. Our services include loaning out temporary items such as tables and chairs, temporary storage, asset management and preparing your department for a departmental move.  Our department utilizes two forms, the Move Request (B450) and the Equipment Request (B24) that are located on SciQuest Home page. Move Request forms are needed when any equipment or assets need to be moved. Equipment Requests (B24) are completed when needing loan equipment.

Purchasing services is also responsible for inventory control.The sole purpose of Inventory Control is to move all university assets and to tag capital assets valued at $5,000 and above. Inventory Control employees will inventory and record these assets with various methods, including the most common, utilizing the: "Property of Ball State University" bar code label.

Please utilize the B450 to notify Purchasing Services if you need recycled items to be picked up. Recycled items include batteries, lamps, toners, computers and electronics. If you have questions, please contact Purchasing Services at 765-285-1803.
