Order requests will be processed via purchase order, credit card orders via vendor websites or telephone, or through campus stores, as applicable. Please complete the requisition with as much detail as possible. Providing catalog numbers, prices, and item descriptions will ensure that the correct items are ordered.
The University systems for purchasing now include a system known as I-Buy. I-Buy provides for lab staff to access the secure system to request the purchase of goods. This secure system includes access to punch-out vendors such as Fisher Scientific, Sigma-Aldrich, CDW-G, Office Max, and Grainger. This list will continue to grow. If you would like access to this system, please contact Penny Broga.
