Welcome to the NIH Supply Center

Coronavirus COVID-19 Notice

Due to COVID-19, you will experience longer wait times on customer backorders. The NIH Supply Center Warehouse and Building 10 Self Service Store are open for business and ready to assist you with any needs and requests you might have. We are working with several suppliers to acquire the much needed supplies. We receive shipments daily and shipping them out right away. Our staff is working tirelessly and overtime to ensure this.

Since this is a fluid situation, our stock levels change daily so the best way to ensure you receive the product is to place the order in POTS, NBS or with your Self Service store charge card. If you are unable to utilize these usual channels, we can also accept manual orders, just please contact our Customer Service team at 301-496-9156/ 301-496-3395 or NIHSC-customerservice@od.nih.gov. We want to thank our NIH community for their patronage and support as we navigate the unusual circumstances created by the coronavirus pandemic.
