Renaming Making Waves

The time has come to rename our weekly e-newsletter and your creative input is needed! We'd like to identify a name that is more representative of our merged College (just in case anyone needs a refresher, that means Earth, Ocean, Atmosphere...and Environment too!). It might be impossible to represent all of that in one catchy title, but try to keep it in mind. I have no doubt that our collective braintrust will produce some great suggestions, please start thinking of ideas send them to Jane Cigarran (jcigarra@coas.oregonstate.edu) the next month. We'll narrow down the top picks for a vote...and the winner will receive a fabulous prize as well as the honor of going down in CEOAS e-newsletter history!

A few little goodies will be on hand for folks who stop by but we will not be having a formal gathering. Casual drop-ins are encouraged, though...come on by!

Attention COSTCO Shoppers!

OSU has a program with Costco so that authorized OSU employees* can shop for goods for OSU departments in person at the Albany or Eugene Costco (or order online from the Costco web site). This program is for OSU business related purchases and not for personal purchases. To better serve our Business Center we ask that you please use this new process vs. purchasing yourself and expensing. It makes tracking much easier for our hardworking folks in accounting.

To sign up using the New COSTCO Authorized Purchaser Request form on the PaCS web site!  Any future authorized purchaser requests will also need to sign up using this new form.Go to pacs.oregonstate.edu/buyorange/Costcoand click on the “Authorized Purchaser Request” link. Fill in all the information fields, and click Submit. This information will be sent to PaCS for review and approval for your purchasing at COSTCO. Should you have any questions concerning the New Process, please feel free to contact Debbie Lauer, Debora.Lauer@oregonstate.edu, 541-737-7343.
