Our goal is to provide excellent customer service to our scientific partners. To support that goal, we remind you that only authorized procurement personnel and division PCard holders can commit the laboratory to expenditures for goods and services.
If you have an urgent request that simply cannot wait (including after hours/weekends), please contact Rosemary Williams (495-2645, firstname.lastname@example.org) or Carmen Ross (486-5671, email@example.com) before committing to a purchase. We are working on establishing an after-hours contact number and will communicate it to the division once in place.
An individual who is not an authorized designee and who purchases goods or services may be responsible for payment of charges incurred.
Examples of Unauthorized Procurements:
Any out of pocket expense incurred; after the fact, submitting a receipt for reimbursement, such as purchasing an item with a personal credit card and requesting to be reimbursed after the fact.
Sending out equipment/parts for repair without FIRST submitting a purchase requisition to firstname.lastname@example.org and receiving an active PO number for the work. If the work takes place before a PO number can be assigned, payment to the vendor can be delayed or declined.
Remember to contact us before you make any commitment to a vendor.
