STOP Numbers | Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center
students on campus

Why do I need to use my STOP number?

There are well over a million items delivered to 3601 4th Street annually. There are over 3,400 current faculty and staff and countless former employees to whom items may be addressed. Larger departments have multiple locations and a large portion of employees are in the system under the department’s administrative STOP. Department names printed on addresses often are abbreviated or cut off because they exceed the number of characters printed on the line.

When items are addressed with a STOP number, Mail Services and Receiving spend seconds to sort each item. Without the STOP, items are delivered to the department name if listed, then the recipient’s name if listed and found in the directory with valid delivery information. Any listed purchase order number or phone number is also researched. Some research takes longer than others, but all research delays getting your item to you. Use of STOP numbers speeds up delivery and eliminates guesswork.

How Did Your Department Rank?

In January, 2019, Mail Services and Receiving documented the number of items received without a STOP number. There were 8,408 mail pieces received without a STOP. Follow this link to see how many mail pieces were delayed getting to your STOP number and where your department ranks in the list of most compliant or worst offenders.
Receiving held the belief that the vast majority of TTUHSC staff have the correct STOP listed in their TechBuy profile and their documentation proved the theory. There were only two items received on purchase orders in January where the STOP was incorrect in the user’s profile. However, we still received 560 items without a STOP or with the wrong STOP.  When you place an order using a PCard, confirm the delivery address with the vendor. Most vendors do not understand that there are 3,500 active employees and 4,175 room numbers associated with the 3601 4th Street address.
