Task Description: Hat and T-Shirt Orders

Task: Order and deliver field hats and shirts to all STS trapping agencies.

Rationale: Identification of STS trappers in field.

Time line: February.

Brief Process Description:

    • Poll each agency on quantities and sizes needed
    • Compile order and place with Purchasing, through HokieMart
    • Check completed order for correctness
    • Sort and ship to each agency


Agency Poll:

  • In early February, email each agency contact and request number and size of t-shirts and hats they will need for upcoming season. Include a response date.
  • Remember non-trapping agencies - Mike Quesinberry and Donna Leonard.
  • Some agencies may not yet know who will be hired. Get a guess.
  • Agency may opt out of hats or duplicate shirts. However, initially plan on two shirts and one hat per trapper and trapper supervisor.

Order :

  • Determine if there needs to be a change in the design or style and work with vendor to secure cost estimate.

Ship to Agencies:

    • Order should be completed by late March and either shipped to Virginia Tech or picked up from a local vendor.
