This provides general guidelines to assist local units in determining the temporary movement of Stanford-issued office equipment and furnishings for staff. Additional reminders about traveling to campus as well as web resources to support telecommuting are also included. Local departments and units may define more restrictive guidelines.
The authority to grant approval to temporarily remove Stanford-issued resources rests with managers. Managers should provide their staff members an email granting permission and listing the specific equipment that can be taken before the staff member takes it. The staff member should have that email when they are moving the equipment. Managers are responsible for tracking those items that have been temporarily removed from offices as well as for ensuring the items are returned.
Please be considerate and mindful of our colleagues who are still working in the office. Common areas are being regularly cleaned and disinfected. When returning to the office it is imperative that social distancing is maintained and common materials and supplies are not removed from kitchens and supply cabinets. Managers should relay this directive to staff when approving trips to return to the office.
