Auxiliary Services Purchase Procedures

These procedures are for the Auxiliary Services/Residence Life/University Food Services departments only. If you need a COSTCO DPO and you are not in Auxiliary Services/Residence Life/University Food Services, please contact your departmental Accounts Payable/Receivable Office. 

  1. Request a COSTCO DPO from the Auxiliary Services Accounts Payable/Receivable Office.
  2. Please plan ahead. If possible call at least a day ahead. If the request is made before 11:00 a.m. the DPO can be picked up from the Auxiliary Services Accounts Payable/Receivable office that afternoon or it can be sent with the runner that afternoon. If the request is made after 11:00 a.m. the DPO can be picked up the next morning or will be sent with the runner the following afternoon.
  3. There is a $75.00 minimum purchase required.
  4. COSTCO will retain the original copy of the DPO and the original cash register receipt. You will retain a copy of the DPO, which will include a printed copy of the cash register receipt. These are due back to the Auxiliary Services Accounts Payable/Receivable Office IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING PURCHASE. The Auxiliary Services Accounts Payable/Receivable Office will then forward it to Andrea Gullckson in the Controller's Office within 24 hours to meet her deadline. If the deadlines are not met we will no longer be able to issue COSTCO DPO's to you.
