Boise Cascade, office supplies vendor for the Laboratory, was shipping
individually packaged items. This caused Laboratory requesters to
complain that there was much more packaging than necessary. Monica
Lucero, a Procurement Contract Assistant in BUS-5, improved the ordering-shipping
process. This improvement enabled Boise Cascade to consolidate several
items into one package--when they were all going to the same requester.
This greatly reduced the amount of packing material, while maintaining
accountability for each item. A secondary benefit is that Boise Cascade
is no longer repackaging items from their wholesalers prior to shipping
them to the Lab. Both these improvements minimize sanitary waste generation
and avoid the cost of the extra packaging.
Everyone who deals with Boise Cascade should request the same change.
