Re: Office supplies

There’s a new person in charge of office supplies.

Monica Regis replaced Carla Yu as of Monday, February 10.
Monica is the one to contact if you’re in need of anything from copy paper and printer cartridges to staples and paper clips.
I recommend getting in touch with her with your orders well in advance of things running out as ordering supplies and having them delivered to the office can sometimes take up to 10 days.
Our usual supplier has been short of certain printer cartridges recently, and filling these orders may take even longer.

WE HAVE A NEW COPY MACHINE!

It’s nice to finally have a copy machine that works.
Our last two machines were rather quirky and had to be serviced all too often.
We decided to change manufacturers and to go for top of the line.
The CopyMax 2000 is a pleasure to use but don’t overdo it—remember we’re trying to save paper.
Each of you will be issued control cards that are to be inserted in the small scanner on top of the copy machine each time you use it.
Copies can be made only when the cards are inserted.
All the data at the time copies are made, including the number of copies, date and time will be recorded and carefully managed in a database.
You may pick up your control cards from Jason in Supplies any time after February 11.
