Summary: Purchasing in PBIO:
Any emergency orders must include justification as to why it is an emergency and should be
submitted no later than 11AM for processing the same day. Please plan ahead when placing orders
and anticipate your needs to keep approximately a 30 day supply of items whenever possible.
There are five ways to make authorized purchases @ UGA:
1. Purchase Requests/Orders through UGAMart (includes Radioactive Isotopes)
These are items requested by the individual/lab that are for vendors in the UGAMart
system and are either on catalog items or non-catalog items.
2. Blanket Orders
Purchase Orders set up with individual vendors for a specific dollar amount and period
of time. Individual/lab will request that a blanket order be established by Brenda.
Once established the individual/lab will contact vendor directly to order items
referencing the PO#. These will be set up for vendor ordering that need to be done
through the vendor directly.
3. Pcard orders
These are items requested by the individual/lab that fall under the PCard guidelines
and for items that are for vendors that are not currently in UGAMart. These orders
will by placed by Brenda, Shannon or Kristin.
These should be purchased directly by individual/lab through CRS.
