Regularly scheduled pickup and delivery of mail to all PCOM departments occurs at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. each business day. Please make sure all mail complies with PCOM Distribution Services’ policy and procedure.

College departments with outgoing mail consisting of 200 or more pieces of the same item(s) are encouraged to consider standard (bulk) mail in order to realize savings of up to 60 percent in postage costs. Contact Distribution Services for additional information including the coordination of the processes associated with standard mail projects (printing, data merging, folding, inserting, addressing, tabbing, labeling, etc.). Please schedule all standard mail projects in advance as completion times may range from one day to two weeks depending upon the scope of the project.

Courier Services

Philadelphia campus Distribution Services manages arrangements for the pickup and delivery of time- and cost-sensitive documents and communications by courier. To schedule a courier pickup or delivery, email distributionservices@pcom.edu.

Office Supplies

Our division provides for the purchase, retrieval and delivery of high-volume-use office supplies. Contact Distribution Services to obtain the appropriate requisition forms for various high-volume standardized printed products, office supplies and copier, fax and printer supplies. Completed forms must be approved and then faxed to Distribution Services at 215-871-6659. Items purchased are charged to the appropriate cost centers through an internal charge back system.

Printer Supplies

Distribution Services handles the storage and distribution of all Ricoh copier and digital printer supplies and toner and ink cartridges for a wide variety of inkjet and laser printers.

Our division recycles all of PCOM's used ink jet printer, laser printer and fax toner cartridges. Please recycle your PCOM cartridges by sending them by interoffice mail or bringing them to Distribution Services, Suite LL-034 in Evans Hall on the Philadelphia campus or Suite 1114 in the Old Peachtree building on the Georgia campus.

Capital Acquisitions

Our division documents the receipt, delivery and tagging of all capital acquisitions. College policy mandates all capital purchases will be assigned an asset control number and have an asset control tag affixed which identifies the property as being purchased and owned by PCOM. Details regarding Distribution Services’ policy and procedure for tagging capital purchases are available in the employee resources section of Nucleus.

Document Disposal

As custodians of restricted information, PCOM has an obligation to ensure all information pertaining to administration, faculty, staff, students and patients remains strictly confidential and that all documents be properly disposed of in a manner that ensures confidentiality and minimizes liability and risk. Distribution Services provides for the secure pick-up, shredding and disposal of documents and appropriate documentation of the activity. Visit the employee resources section of Nucleus to review policy and procedure regarding records retention.
