Receiving and Stores
Receiving is responsible for the secure receipt, inspection and routing of materials ordered by the College and members of the college community. The department also is the initial receiver and sorter for most non-USPS parcels received at the College. We retain any deemed to be college property or of sensitive value and forward the balance to the Mailroom for distribution.
Every effort is made to maintain a quick and efficient flow of materials to their destination. The process is as follows:
- Receiving prioritizes the processing of incoming orders and prepares the Receiving Reports for each order;
- An inspection is conducted;
- Items are scheduled for forwarding and;
- Reports are then forwarded to Accounts Payable to insure that vendors are paid promptly, in accordance with State guidelines.
Only after such processing has occurred are shipments delivered to end-users, made available for pickup in select cases, or forwarded to the Baruch Computing and Technology Center for further processing. The latter being the norm for all computer-related shipments.
Non-Baruch purchase orders, such as those made through the CUNY Research Foundation, DASNY or other agencies, are handled in an analogous manner.
The routing of personal purchases to Receiving by members of the college community is not encouraged. When such shipments are received and retained by the department (most typically when they are identifiable as computers or other items of sensitive value), an e-mail to the department supervisor, Mike Lesko (Mike.Lesko@baruch.cuny.edu), is required to secure release of the items. The text must explicitly state that the purchase is personal and that the material is not classifiable as college property.
Receiving is located in Room 150 of the Information and Technology Building at 151 East 25 Street.

Please direct all inquiries to the Supervisor of Receiving, Mike Lesko via email: Mike.Lesko@baruch.cuny.edu or call 646-312-1472. E-mail is preferable in that it allows the easy inclusion of purchase order numbers, tracking numbers, etc. which are various identifiers that will help us to trace the history of a particular shipment.
Supervisor, Mike Lesko
