The Central Stores procures and supplies various items under the above heads to all the user departments. Procurement is done through annual e-tenders. The process of procurement is elaborate, with calling of samples, evaluation of the samples by the user-departments with adequate documentation of any rejections, and orders to the firms providing approved samples. The confirmation of the orders is made after due discussion by the relevant expert committees. Any supplied material found to be not conforming to the samples or lacking in quality in any way, as reported by the user-departments, is rejected and is returned to the vendors. Occasionally, when items are required urgently or new items are to be procured, procurement is done by calling for limited quotations.
The Stores, under the supervision also coordinates the collection and disposal of all hospital condemned items, certified by the condemnation committee, by due process of public auction. The revenue thus earned is deposited in the Institute revenue account.
The store personnel update stock registers, and inventory on a daily basis. They also maintain a calendar for issue of items to users. Currently the Stores are migrating to an online requisition mode.
The Stores maintains a close contact with the Purchase Section and helps in utilizing surplus funds for the benefit of the Institute and the Hospital.
