Purchasing

Primary Contact for Purchasing: Marilyn Larsen (temporarily)

The Center for Limnology must comply with all applicable UW-Madison and State of Wisconsin purchasing policy.

Before you purchase ANY items, talk to Marilyn Larsen (temporarily) or one of the other administrative staff (Kelly O’Ferrell or Alyssa Luckey Winters).  For a summary of the purchasing processes, you may visit the Division of Business Services for information:  https://businessservices.wisc.edu/purchasing/

Some items are available through standing contracts with vendors.  One place to access these vendors is by using Shop@UW: https://shopuw.wisc.edu/.   Certain transactions may be authorized on the department credit card and others may require a requisition and the involvement of an authorized UW purchasing agent.  Check with Marilyn Larsen (temporarily) about the process you will need to follow.

The UW-Madison is tax exempt.  Be sure that any purchases are made using the tax exempt status.  The tax exempt certificate and related information can be found on the UW-Madison Business Services page:  https://businessservices.wisc.edu/documents/sales-tax-exempt-certificate/
