QUESTIONS? Contact the Downstate Depot/Central Stores Reception Desk.
FIRST TIME USERS: Need to establish a new CitiStorage account by completing the CitiStorage Account Set Up form and a DMC Purchase Requisition Form for your estimated annual expenses; send both to Central Stores.
EACH NEW FISCAL YEAR, you must complete a new Purchase Requisition Form at the start of each new FY for your estimated annual expenses and submit to Central Stores.
DON'T PAY TO STORE UNNECESSARY RECORDS! When you place records in storage, your department will continue to pay for the monthly storage, so it is important that you at least annually review the list of records that your department has in storage and that you destroy records that are no longer required to be retained. When new files are sent for archiving, you will be required establish the destruction date for the files. The NYS Archive guidelines for record retention can be found online.
