* Pre-Approval Authorization for Distribution Services (PAADS) for FY13-14

Are you constantly seeking the appropriate signatures for “Copy Service Requests” and/or “In-House Office Supply” forms before submitting your request? Avoid the routing hassles by submitting a completed “PAADS” form with signature authorizations (per the UE Approval Policy.) today.  By obtaining pre-authorization for Distribution Services requests, requestors save valuable time for a fiscal year based on the dollar amount designated, account numbers provided and services requested on the PAADS form.

The renewal process is simple.
1. Print, complete, obtain authorized signature and submit the form via campus mail to Doris Cook/Distribution Services/GS the PAADS form which is located on either of the following websites on AceLink Areas under Forms & Instructions at
• Copy Services website at  http://acelink/Areas/CopyServices/
• Central Receiving website at http://acelink/Areas/CentralReceiving/

Note: Employee status changes (Requestors and Approvers) during a fiscal year will void a PAADS and a new approved PAADS will be necessary.

For questions, contact Doris Cook at extension 1067 or email dc47
